Three Years Dreaming may the only book of its kind. It’s a bit off-beat, a three-year memoir told entirely in dreams. It began with keeping a dream journal for personal reflection and artistic inspiration. It led to a series of nine paintings based on dreams, and more than a handful of poems. After a time, I started looking at the dreams like stories, odd little narratives where things transform into other things, points of view change, and the impossible becomes commonplace. So I edited the most interesting ones into something readable.
The result is an utterly candid and extremely personal record of things that never happened. True, there are recurring themes and characters. There’s also a page so personal that the entire thing is redacted, blacked-out text. And at the end, when it ends the only way a dream really can, you may feel like you took a very surreal but emotionally intense journey.
The book is broken into three chapters, each containing a year of dreams.
