Regardless of issue theme, we’re also always looking for dreams for our resident dream expert, Billy, to interpret. Billy may or may not be a Grimoire coven member with a copy of Billy Bing’s Dream Book. Please don’t use Billy for real life advice; that’s what therapists are for. Please peruse a few examples from the archives before emailing us yours, and include Dear Billy in the subject line.
