Catalog of Dreams #1004

This is the dream of remote control. In this dream you can press a button whenever you like and totally reconceive the world around you. Click, you are two hundred feet tall looking down on sleeping suburbia. Click, you are having rum toddies with Benjamin Franklin in a Parisian fancy house. Click, Gloria Steinem and Barbara Mikulski are washing out the Senate chamber with fire hoses. Click, you are in a forest whose tinkling leaves are made of exquisite air-thin glass.
