Will you have the opportunity to go to NM while you are here? I'm very curious about the dream patterns in this country and abroad. What's up with that? Why does it happen? Is it a national trend or is it the result of being a white girl in a non-white society. That research would make for an excellent post.

Take care and dream on!



It sounds like a wonderful dream....and an exciting life. What took you to New Mexico and then Shanghai?


Kristin Bair O'Keeffe

Hey Casey,

Good questions. I'm going to check with Chinese friends in Shanghai about dreams. I, too, am a little obsessed with dreams/dreaming/etc. Will post when I've got some info.

Hi Lisa,

Thanks for reading. I went to the ranch to make time to write and to run a wee fishing/hunting lodge at 10,000 feet. Amazing, amazing, amazing.

4.5 years ago my husband's job took us to Shanghai. Again, another wonderful opportunity to explore a new part of the world & write.


Claire Anderson

That is the most vivid dream I have ever read. Nice work. I felt like I was taken to those places too. I wish I can write my dreams like that. Maybe I should start writing my dreams. I think it is a good practice as well. Thanks for inspiring me again to write and to travel.

I live in Shanghai, China, with my Irish
husband and Vietnamese daughter.
Throughout the past four years, I've
crisscrossed the globe more times than
I can count, and while doing so, have
discovered what a kooky, miraculous,
and lovely place our world is. My experiences
enlighten me, inspire me, and crack me up.
