Description
A Dimension of Dreams is a collection of 100 poems that illustrate the emotions and memories of survival, the evolution of healing through trauma, and the resiliency of the human spirit. Created by army veteran Ruben Canales, A Dimension of Dreams takes the reader on an intimate journey -- from his live experiences while on duty through the aftermath of his recovery -- and offers a deep expression of hope, love, and friendship amidst life's most difficult challenges. Many of the poems were derived from terrorizing nightmare experiences, while others are more philosophical in nature addressing the human condition in adapting to day to day life conditions. A sense of strong patriotism and honor runs deep in many of the poems and evokes strong feelings of questioning the meaning of our lives.
About the author
Ruben Canales is a retired army veteran who served in Vietnam, Desert Storm, and Desert Shield, terms of duty in which he had firsthand ER experiences as a medic in field hospitals. Upon returning home, Canales suffered greatly from PTSD and sought therapy and writing as an avenue to process his trauma. He hopes that his poetry will not only cultivate more empathy among his readers for the veteran community, but also inspire hope and opportunity for the future.
