Yesterday I read the first chapter of Irvin Yalom's book, "Momma and the Meaning of Life," where his deceased mother appears in a dream announcing that it is HER dream. Last night I dreamed that I was telling my deceased father that I could now feel compassion & empathy for my mother after having suffered treatments similar to hers. Also yesterday my wife developed a post-operative complication similar to one I suffered as well. I awoke with more feeling for my mother than I have ever felt. So, whose dream is this?
