  1. Wow! Some startling revelations here. When I’m not exhausted, I have vivid dreams. Many times it’s like a real experience. So far, no Dragons have appeared. :D. And, those eyes! It’s like we have a sixth sense for what eyes are telling us about a person. No wonder my eyes are light sensitive. There are so many lovable people in my life, I’m sure my eyes are permanently dilated. 😉

    1. So cool cuzz! To be honest I only had one vivid dream in my life and it scared the living s**t out of me. I had pretty nasty “powers” in that dream, but I must say I also had a revelation or two. Othaer than that, my dreams are always pretty blurry, so I guess I’m always safe and sound in my skin. And the pupil story! I wonder what it means when people look at each other and their pupils become smaller LOL.

      1. LOL! Yes, I think it best to remain in one’s skin at night. I’m sure if I departed for an evening romp, it would be possible to get lost and not find myself again. That would be the nightmare part. I’m going to guess that if someone is looking at you with pinpoint pupils, you are on the menu as the main course. I think I’ll add that to my growing list of things to watch out for. 😛
