DREAMS: The father of modern psychoanalysis and an Austrian neurologist Sigmund Freud, described dreams as ‘’the royal road to the unconscious.” Freud, one of the most influential and authoritative thinkers of the 20th century, submitted that dreams are ‘’visions or portents of what the future might hold’’. In modern times, his postulation considers dreams as a window into the unconscious mind.’’ There are precognitive dreams; just as there are prophetic dreams.  Scientists have proven that everyone dreams during sleep, but not everyone is able to recall the mental adventure.

Time will tell. I HAD A DREAM: The foregoing is the catalyst for this treatise. During my public service outing spanning some years, I had the opportunity of serving wonderful patriots who gave people on their personal staff wide latitude to express themselves and prove their worth.
