Love gives life its strength
An ever increasing might
Let your dreams take flight

Medically retired from the Army with a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia, I have travelled across the country until finally settling down in the mountains of NC. I have been seperated from my wife since 1996 and have become the best of friends ever since. I have written four books and hope to write 1/year from now on.

    Thank you for posting this.
    I’m content…but I’m trying to remember my dreams.

  • One method to help takes discipline to do. Start writing down everything you remember about your dreams first thing in the morning when you wake up. Before long you’ll start remembering a great deal. Many thanks for commenting Corri.

    Oh, JR…dreams at night I think I remember. Great advice on how to remember them better! I will have to try that.
    It’s dreams of what I want to do or be that I’m trying to remember again….long story.
    I’ve lived many of them…but I can’t possibly have lived all of them.

  • Good luck on your endevours. Such dreams are important.
