Dream

How often have you heard someone exclaim – it just does not feel real; it feels like a bad dream or like I’m on the set of some dystopic sci-fi movie? Have you ever suffered a bereavement of someone close and noticed how surreal time and reality feels, as you morph in and out of…

War

War What is it good for?
