Dream about Horn Rapid

Last night, or really this morning, I dreamt about the first rapid that I will run when I join my father's Grand Canyon trip in May. Because I am in school I will not be able to begin this Grand Canyon trip at Lee's Ferry, instead I will be hiking in to join the group at Phantom Ranch. I do not know what boat I'll be in when I arrive. My father is bringing a kayak for me, but he has enough rookie boatmen that I may well be called on to jump into an 18 foot raft and row it through some pretty big whitewater.

on schizophrenia

My father's father may have been schizophrenic. I recently met a woman whose son has this diagnosis. I have a girlfriend who went through a period of schizophrenia after experimenting heavily with LSD. It's out there. It's genetic, and more.
