The other day I awoke from a very strange and disturbing dream. I found myself amongst some relics that had been recovered from the sea. Part of it was the bow of a pirate ship which was constructed of human skulls and bones.
You might want to suggest therapy, but let me tell you what I've been doing lately--watching all the seasons of the tv program Bones [DVD BON]. I'm now on season 4 and by my estimate I've seen over a million skulls so far. It's no wonder I'm seeing skulls in my dreams! Where the pirates come in is anyone's guess.
Bones is based upon the novels and personal experience of Kathy Reichs, a forensic anthropologist. Reichs has written a dozen books about her forensic anthropologist character, Temperance Brennan. Her latest book, currently on the bestsellers list, is 206 Bones [F REI, also LP REI].
