    Could be, I have flown when I was a child, over my neighborhood streets.
    Dream in color, some really wild, some real weird, some way out SyFy crap. Most, but not always, I don’t remember.

    Sleep with a note pad and a pen or pencil next to your bed to write it down, next hit movie, maybe?
