I sustain myself in the Northwest US as a printer and publisher. Born in Canada, in the Cariboo, I have lived most of my life bouncing around North America, with occasional trips across the salt waters.

My family, comprised of a supportive wife and two grown sons, have unfathomable depths of patience and humor.



  1. Really enjoying reading your dreams, do you ever try to analyze them or just record them?

    • In this place, my goal is to post them, but I do see recurring patterns. Some symbols are more obvious than others. I remind myself that my friends and family whose images appear in my dreams are only shadows of elements of myself, not the people, themselves.

    • thanks, ms. Emz:

      your encouragement is greatly appreciated.

      now what do i do?

  3. Norman,
    My dreams and I thank you for doing this. Keeps the inbox interesting. Your unadorned style of presentation works well. Since following your blog and reading your posts, I seem to be dreaming more, or remembering more of them.

    I had a troubling dream the other night. The only thing I remember about the dream was thinking that I was going to remember the dream someday, not as a dream, but as something that really happened. As the dream was fading, this thought was followed by the lingering worry that this would cause an important mistake in my life. Has anything like this ever happened to you?
    Thanks again, Brian

    • thanks, Brian. your words are an encouragement — sometimes i question the usefulness of posting these.
      there has been a blurring of the lines, having anger at people for their actions within my dreams, and the like. In fact, recording the dreams has been a way to clarify one world from the other.
      where i get confused is how many things and places i remember within a dream, yet i have no daytime cognate.
      hope to correspond with you again, soon.

  4. Thank you for checking out my blog. I’m glad you enjoyed it! It seems like a very courageous thing to write out your dreams…they are so personal. I dream almost every night and often journal my dreams. My friend is a great interpreter of them so sometimes I tell her about them. Dreams are very telling, aren’t they?

    • thank you, Ms. Bennet, for taking the time to read the dream from this morning. some of my dream blogging friends research interpretations, but I let them accumulate their own meanings. nlg

  5. Hi, Norman–

    Thanks ever so much for the “like” and the “follow” on my poetry / hiking / mythology blog!

    And thank you for your part in hosting the Clover launch yesterday–it was a lovely celebration–and for all your work on the magazine!

    • I sent the link to my sister-in-law, Peggy, a Methow Valley based novelist. She was mightily impressed with your blog.

      • Wow–thanks for telling me that, Norman!

        I plan to post twice more about our visit to that beautiful valley. Your sister-in-law lives in an amazing place!

  6. really missing your posts and hoping that all is well with you…

    • now, there is one for you to read. nlg
