All THE SNOOZE THAT’S FIT TO PRINT
Welcome to Tzivia’s blog about the other third of our lives…the time we spend asleep and dreaming.
Here on this blog, we’ll get curious about dreams and explore them from every angle—from dream journeys to dream journals, and from dreams that are hard to remember to dreams that won’t let us forget. You may also find dream poetry, dream reports, dreams that tell the future, and dreams that tell it like it is. We won’t turn our back on nightmares or neglect dreams of ecstasy and bliss. We’ll examine messages from beyond and messages that seem to need a codebook to decipher. Be they sublime or ridiculous, we’ll track the territory and mine the mysteries of sleep and dreaming.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When life gives you dreams, make poems--then sing them. Like many other prolific dreamers, I have journals filled with dream snippets, dream fragments, and more rambling epic dreams than I know what to do with. Here's one...read more
The Key. The key to the hotel room is worthy of its own fairytale. Two keys, really. Heavy and silver, and long enough to cross the entire palm of my hand. The pair of them,like a child's stick-figure drawing of a man and a woman: lollipop heads on long narrow columns...read more
Grocery shopping done. Now it's time to stand up for a cause. I return home from a long day, and put the groceries in the fridge. Shopping's done. Check that off my to-do list (which is as long as my arm, by the way). But between all the errands and tasks, I also need...read more
