Excerpt from the “You Gotta be Kiddin’ Me!” dream dictionary for

Sea gull


You stand at the precipace of transformation, but you cling on to yourself for dear life! Life calls you to deeper waters, but you say, “No, thanks. I’m already happy with my religion,” and remain in the shallows. An abudance awaits you, but that’s ok; You’ll happily squabble with others for the scraps! The horizon offers you a new vision, but that would mean taking your eyes off the others eyeing you. There’s a treasure found in silence that you ignore in favor of constant noise, including those of your own making.


Unless, of course, you dream of Jonathan Livingston Seagull. Then, of course, you will ride the winds of change over deep waters, in pursuit of vision while savoring the silence.


And likely wind up floating on your back. Wondering if this is the end.


Why worry

about the meaning of dreams?
