No one really knows why we dream. Maybe it’s temporary insanity; maybe it’s our subconscious mind seeking relief; maybe it’s simply because can’t do without nightly entertainment while we sleep.
Whatever the reason, I conducted a survey of Clearwater citizens and discovered a remarkable connection between who they are and what they’ve been dreaming. Here are the results, first stating what the dream was about and then my interpretation of who that person is, should be or how he or she really feels.
