Pick a dream, any dream!

Here they are, my friends, like a deck of cards fanned out before you, my dreams. Arrayed in no particular order. You just pick a card, any card, and read away. You can start and end anywhere you like. The dreams are but a few pages each, and chances are you will want to read another and maybe another. They are as revealing as tarot cards are intimate, a mystical blend of past, present and future. I wish I had thought of this metaphor as I was writing, the persona of a clairvoyant, crusty crone eyeballing you into submission over a handful of divining cards suits the narrator–my seahorse/hippocampus–to a tee.


Sour grape aside, the titles below refer to the improvised dreams my seahorse plays for me, just to make me clear on who I am and why I am here and where I am going. Remember, though, that chapter titles can be deceiving, that a book cannot be judged by its cover, so, please, go ahead, pick one.
