JEAN ARP'S OCTOPUS: by Wayan; 2001/2/26; a surreal dream of my surreal reaction to a surrealist and his... lunch

LUCID GIRDERS: by Wayan; 1993/8/18, an illustrated dream about dreaming.

THIRD EYE: by Wayan; 2009/3/25, three diverse dreamlets on the same theme: enlightenment
Three sisters consecutively flash me. But the middle sister has a third eye in there! Clothed, it's blinded. So is she flirting or just enlightening herself?
