Sarah Elkins, I have had running dreams, not being naked dreams. But they were scary just the same. I’m not sure what the reasons were, but I am happy that they have mostly subsided in recent years.
The real message for me in your post is about being authentic. Yeah, we in an audience can see someone who isn’t — at least we think we can — and it doesn’t make for a good time.
As usual, you grabbed me with the first line and kept me going all through the article. You are a superb storyteller!
