Favorite Dream: I was in a clear blue athletic pool and I was finally swimming up and down with an excellent breath rythm. A younger woman was keeping me company out of the pool, having my walkman on her hands. For the first time I could feel my body, spirit and soul in a complete cynchronization. I was happy and relieved!
