Vivid dreaming

I have been having quite a few vivid dreams lately.  It has been
fairly common for me to wake up (from a dream) in the middle of the
night.  The dreams have felt so real that I have a hard time
determining whether or not I’m dreaming at that point.

I have been pretty busy, but that seems to just be the nature of
summer.  I have a strong desire to start meditating again… I
think that would help with some stress that I’ve been feeling. 
Also, I am continuing to read (after a peroid of not reading) The Art
of Happiness
.  If you’re looking for a book to give you a better
outlook on things, give it a read.
