The school dreams started weeks ago. They always do, around mid-July. When they first come back, I usually wake with a start, but then, groggily, remember it’s only July. July is much too early, and I’m usually able to keep them from returning for a little while.
Now, in early August, the dreams are back, but this time they are accompanied by conscious daytime thoughts and musings. How should I arrange the desks? Do I like where I left the bookshelf? Should I use the same programs as last year or different ones, or just add a new component? Is it time for a couch?
