Most people are fascinated by their dreams. What are they? Why do we dream? What do our dreams tell us? How can we interpret them?

Unless it was a particularly vivid dream, most people forget their nocturnal musings upon awakening. How often have you struggled to recoup a dream, only to find it lost among the memories floating in your conscious mind?

Left behind is often a sense of loss, and sometimes anger, because we feel a particular dream may have been important. Perhaps you sensed it held the solution to a long-standing problem, or the answer to a question long unanswered.

Dreams have long raised many questions among researchers, and they are slowly unraveling answers, the how and why of the dream process, and ways to help us remember and interpret our dreams.

If you want to learn how to remember and use dreams to enhance your life, the Howard County General Hospital is offering a one-day seminar called "Coming Home To Yourself."

The seminar will be taught by Gerry Landrum, a dream expert and psychodramatist, who teaches people how to access their dreams and to use them constructively.

The fee is $60 dollars and pre-registration is required. Please call (410) 740-7600 for additional information.

Spring has finally arrived, crocuses are beginning to push their way out of the ground, and worms once again slither across blacktop driveways after a hard rain. And, if the rain ever stops, the ringing sound of baseball meeting bat will waft from Columbia playing fields.

In celebration of spring, Maryland Science Week and Earth Day, the Howard County Library will present Celebrate Mother Earth" a program of stories and activities for children ages 6 and up.

The program at the central library will be held April 22, from 3 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. Registration is required and will begin today at 10 a.m.

For additional information, or to register by phone, please call Jo Puckett, central branch children's librarian, at 313-7880.

More random thoughts about spring:

The changeover to daylight savings time is a sure sign of spring. Don't you wish that daylight savings time was year round?

The most unpleasant part of winter is not the cold, or the snow, but the fact that it's dark by five o'clock in the evening.

It was nice to see the Columbia Association and members of the Hobbit's Glen community work together and come up with an equitable solution to the concern over the adults-only proposal for their neighborhood pool.

Sometimes democracy does work the way it's supposed to.

The same probably can't be said about the school redistricting problem.

Although a decision has been made, there were no winners. A lot of nasty and inflammatory words were exchanged between members of the affected Columbia communities and many people feel the reputation of a fine high school was unjustly besmirched.

It will likely take years to heal the wounds that were opened.
