How would you like to be able to control your dreams? To turn your dream into a virtual holodeck, like on Star Trek, where you can be anyone and go anywhere? You can fly, you can breathe underwater, you can visit distant planets and live the life you've always wanted. This is what lucid dreaming is all about. In a lucid dream, you become aware that you're dreaming - and you can now control it. You can cause a white stallion to appear on your tropical beach and ride him along the turquoise waters. You can turn your nightmare of a twisted forest into a quiet wood with a beautiful, mossy pond. If you wish, a unicorn can appear to nestle at your side. I'd say the sky was the limit - but really, it's not. If you want to head into outer space, and bounce along the moon's surface, you can! I've been lucid dreaming for many years and have helped others achieve this same glorious state. By following my step-by-step guidelines, you'll find that you're lucid dreaming in no time at all. Take that first step - and live your dreams! All proceeds benefit battered women's shelters.

This innovative collection, featuring three plays by Carlos Morton, spans five centuries of Mexican and Mexican American history. In the tradition of teatro campesino, these plays present provocative revisions of historical events. The first play, La Malinche, challenges the historical record of the tragic clash between Indians and Spaniards. The near-mythical La Malinche, who betrayed her country for love of Hernan Cortez but was then betrayed by him, is freed from the bonds of history to have her vengeance. She saves her legacy and destroys the legacy of the conquistador. In the second play, Dreaming on a Sunday in the Alameda, characters from a mural by painter Diego Rivera come to life to depict four centuries of Mexican history. Among these, Frida Kahlo, Rivera’s wife, finally steps out of his shadow as a woman and artist in her own right. Esperanza, a libretto for an opera, tells the story of Mexican miners who labored in twentieth-century Silver City, New Mexico. Based on the classic movie Salt of the Earth, this play deftly portrays the crisis that foretold the rise of the Chicano movement.
