               minds.  Andy  listened  deeply,  but  his  intellectual  mind

               could  not  appreciate  the  esoteric  despite  his  strange

               experience in the city. Until that fateful day in the opening

               in the forest.

                                                       * * * * *

               After  that  first  instance  of  lucid  dreaming,  Andy  swung

               between naked fear and pure excitement as he strained

               to make some sense of the whole experience. He lingered
