Dream Journals on the Net

After the rise of logging dream descriptions online, some dreamers recently started to also put drawings and other pictures online. You may find these inspiring.

Late 2006 Robin Whitmore started his online dream diary. He makes his drawings on paper with his eyes closed. After scanning the colors are inverted. The DreamDiary is currently also on display as a year long installation at the Dock, Carrick on Shannon, Ireland.

Grant: Can Our Dreams Make Us Well?

Dream Power: Can Our Dreams Make Us Well?
by Mary Jo Davis-Grant

She dreamed her way from sick to healthy

Did you ever have a dream that left you feeling healthy and refreshed in the morning? Well, Mary Jo Davis-Grant did: 500 of them, in fact, over a seven-year illness.
