The Book of Dreams based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
A novelist whose works are based on dreams here provides vivid dreams from over a lifetime that not only inspired a number of literary works, but are artistic creations themselves. "Dreams are essential to me. I do my best to pay attention to them. Not only do I often write them down, but I think about them for years afterwards. It is occasionally made clear to me that they are meant to be turned into stories or poems or plays, or even songs. ... "Dreams can be funny, irritating, frightening, profound, exciting, and everything else ¿ but always sacred. Some of these dreams have been clearly prophetic, some came at significant moments in my life, and all of them are moving. ... "If nothing else, I hope you will find these dreams entertaining. More than that, you might appreciate this window into the craft of a writer. Best of all, perhaps you will sense through them how sacred and powerful the voice of Spirit is and be encouraged to listen for that voice yourself. "For these dreams are not mine, in the possessive sense; they are all of ours; they are Spirit¿s." --from the Preface
