Daily Prompt – Freudian Flips

Do you remember a recent dream you had? Or an older one that stayed vivid in your mind? Today, you’re your own Freud: Tell us the dream, then interpret it for us! Feel free to be as serious or humorous as you see fit, or to invent a dream if you can’t remember a real one.

So the actual dream that first came to mind is something that I’ve previously written about…

Daily Prompt – An Ounce Of Home

You’re embarking on a yearlong round-the-world adventure, and can take only one small object with you to remind you of home. What do you bring along for the trip?

I’d take a photograph of my entire family from one of the big family reunions that they had – that I was unable to go to… Again.
