Color

Not just dreams in color--that'd be a long list, since I and many other dreamers always dream in color. For colorful dreams just cruise the art gallery. These are dreams hinging somehow on color, or studying color, or contrasting grayness and rainbows...

RELATED TOPICS: focus - mirrors and reflections - blindness and sight - gems and crystals including some crystal balls and seeing-stones - nocturnes: dreams of the dark - See also the full INDEX OF SUBJECTS.
