About the Book
This book has turned into a tome of the author’s personal dreams over the years after he suffered through a ruptured cerebral aneurysm and subsequent recovery. He has had some odd fantasies during his current years of being alive. It is typical for one who has suffered a brain injury to have unusual dreams. Mr. Gallik has summarized his dreams into long and short paragraphs. He believes his dreams are what life is supposed to be, but many find it hard to accept. Perhaps people should spend less time worrying and more time dreaming of the oddities that come while breathing. It’s hard to take the time to stop and ponder these strange thoughts and dreams. But if that happened, perhaps life would be more understandable and acceptable.
I believe this book has turned into a tome of my personal dreams over the years after I suffered through a burst aneurysm. You will quickly find out I have had some odd fantasies during my years of being alive. Generally, I have summarized them into long and short paragraphs. I believe dreams are what life is supposed to be. However, many times they are what life really is, but we cannot accept it that way. Just possibly we should spend less time worrying and more time dreaming of the oddities that come while you are breathing. It’s like we do not take enough time to stop. If we stopped and examined what we are doing we would feel more comfortable about what is really happening to us.
