"When I was little I had a whole mythology about our
backyard. I still remember strange dreams about
otherworldly beings taking up residence in the field
behind the screen of trees and showing me things . . .
which is probably why I found Strieber's "The Secret
School" so compelling. I also have "memories" of
strange lights in my room. Go figure.
With the lights, I honestly don't know. I'd see
cartoons on the wall (from my crib) and would watch.
I called this "dreaming on the wall," and childishly
assumed it was something everyone did, or could do.
Of course, I realize this could have been confabulated
