I'm wondering at what point a daydream, waking dream, or even nocturnal dream becomes a premonition?I only ask because I had a waking dream on the way over to a friend's house for dinner. It was the dream in which, through some quirk beyond my control, I lose my legs. The method always seems to … Continue reading A Leg To Stand On
