Day-Dreaming With God

I’m about to take you down the rabbit hole. Actually, into the post office, or some other shop that sells random things that you’d never find anywhere else. Seems that’s where my dreams are stored. Well, these ones anyway! I have had some fun dreaming over the course of my life, daydream dreams! You know the kind… the ones you spend your adolescence crafting?
