The 14 Weirdest Dreams In Hollywood | Sam Mendes
Sam Mendes

“The recurring dream from my childhood was the Wicked Witch Of The West walking up my road, bending each lamp post over and blowing out each lamp one by one as she got closer and closer, and when she blew out the last lamp I woke up... like, wailing.”

Kelly Bulkeley PhD is author of Dreaming In The World’s Religions: A Comparative History and An Introduction To The Psychology Of Dreaming. www kellybulkeley.com
