This Week In DC History, Vol 3

What is This Week In DC History

"On Dreaming: Forgetting The Elephant," Saturday, April 16, 2011

This was one of my more inspired titles for my On Dreaming series of posts (which is still ongoing, though it has slowed considerably, since I've already covered so much material). It concerned itself with dreams feeling so real that you forget to do a reality check, forget that there's a possibility that you might still be asleep... which is the amateur's easy way out.

This was also around the time when the Jared Loughtner story was coming to light, the loner who claimed to be well practiced in lucid dreaming and striving to create a new world order. He gave lucid dreaming a lot of bad press for months, but also gave dreaming a lot of press period (which worked out really well for me--I just happened to be getting into the swing of things with my blog and dreaming posts).
