LIFE’S A DREAM
What happens to us when we dream? Where do we go? What is the difference between dreaming and living? Where do we go when we die? Why are so many of our dreams about control? Do we ever have control? Are hallucinations dreams? Why do we lock people away for dreaming? What happens when someone born outside the social constructs we have built enters the world? Why do we collectively shame female anger? I can’t see the wind so how can I trust it? It all disappears in the end.
