Re: Weird Dreams

Dreams I have lots, very often more than one. Last night I dreamt I was being burgled, I didn't recognize the house at all, but I lived there?

The lack of space and options that lockdown creates is a kind of torture, and no wonder you've lashed out at your closest person - I am sure she will understand. You...
