Rolling back over I thought about falling back asleep right away hoping to continue the dream, but even my half-awake mind … Continue reading to sleep, perchance to dream.
The post I wrote on Sunday, October 10th will explain the ideas behind the Unsent Love Letter Mix Tape series, and if it still doesn’t make sense to you, well then, at least it makes sense to me.
