For the sort of dreams that humans have while asleep, you will have to consult other books. This book is not about bad dreams or nightmares either. This book is about dreams in real life that are dashed by death, divorce, moves, loss of a job, or a loss of a relationship. Hence, these are grieving dreams or dream death. The circumstances of life, for us all, brings loss into our lives. Some loss is self-actuated, other loss is from the actions of others, while other losses just happen in what we call "acts of God". In every loss, there is a "dream dimension" to the loss. The "what would have been, what should have been, or what could have been," is the dream element of the loss.
