Mid-October 2014 Dreamer Sight Newsletter
Hello, and an ongoing outstanding October to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter.
The photo above is cropped from a group of close friends sitting with
me. I'm reasonably calm, and my eyes are open, which was not always

Clearly for good vision, we need both!
It's interesting to me to notice the related styles of
thinking and attention. Near-sighted thinking (which is
even called "myopic"!) can churn on the tiniest detail,
when sometimes a more panoramic view would be useful.

How are YOU?
If you've been a client of mine, and we haven't connected in a
while, I'd love to know how you're doing. How is it going with
improvement, or your dreaming, or whatever issues we've worked
on together in the past?
Or perhaps some new challenges have arisen for you, and you'd like to
tell me about those. As the saying goes, don't be a
