I know my brain is capable of imagination. This morning I work up in the middle of a very detailed dream. I was exploring the many unusual rooms of a fixer-upper we bought. It had a perfect children’s room with a slide instead of a door to get out and over the garage was a theater room not with a stupid big TV but with a stage and curtain and old fancy woodwork.
