Briar’s Journal (January 10 to 19, 2012)

Dream Entry*

October 15, 2007


I can only remember fragments of my dream:


Morzant knitting snail socks.


A butterfly telling me to mind my own business.


A duck throwing a rubber ball at my head.


Two beagle puppies singing about clam chowder.


My friends building forts out of books.

* The dream entries from Briar’s journal contain premonitions of books that will be published in the future. Briar’s dream self foresees the books’ summaries and knows which will likely appeal to each of her friends. Briar always wakes up before she can see whether her friends will enjoy the books.
