It is said that dreams are just that: only dreams. But believe me, this is not always true. Some dreams are as real as the dreamer.
Thanks to their dreams, dreamers can receive the special visit of eternal wisdom that has inspired the creativity of great inventors, scientists, musicians, and even writers throughout the ages.
This creative wisdom is not always the type that appears to the eager conscience. Sometimes, a Defiler, a destroyer of dreams, is the one who tries to appear before the dreamer. These creatures were once humans, but they allowed their pain and desire for revenge to take over and seek the same miserable fate for the one who dreams.
You must not fear — Dream Guardians, also known as Kelsdrant, will always protect the one who dreams, even with their own life. They are people of flesh and bone, just like you and me, or at least they are on Earth.
The following story is dedicated to the fun, extravagant, and enlightening life of Julian Fox, the Dream Guardian.
Be prepared, dear reader. It is time to dream, laugh, reflect, and even maybe cry.
Welcome to the Land of the Wise Dreams.
Read an Excerpt
Chapter 3: Alminrach Kelsdrant
Solidarity transcends the differences caused by fear.
The excitement became smiles, and the happiness turned into an invitation. Enthusiastic about the upcoming tour, Brenda joked with Julian,
“I will serve as a tour guide.”
They happily walked the few feet that separated them from the Palace. The end of the road revealed the surprise, and the magnificent edifice made one’s heart alternate between feelings of fascination and disbelief. Born of marble and sculpted with the most exquisite inspiration, what towered before them was a work of colossal proportions and delicate details.
The Guardians slowed their pace to admire such grandeur. Brenda took a deep breath and proudly presented it to her pupil:
“Julian, this is Alminrach Kelsdrant, our Palace.”
The surprised Guardian admired it in silence until he could speak:
“It’s exactly the same as the Parthenon, only much bigger.”
“You’re right, Julian, but the construction of our Palace precedes the appearance of man on Earth. As you might guess, it served as the inspiration for such a magnificent building.”
“How is that possible?” Julian asked in amazement, without lifting his eyes from the Palace.
Brenda simply replied:
“All in good time, Julian. What I can tell you is that in Mikangly Greydalash you’ll find many surprises and the origin of many things you’ve seen or read on Earth.”
