“What is this place?” I ask.
“It is the Archive of Lost Dreams,” he tells me.
“Why are the dreams lost?”
“Some people have had to put a great many of their dreams away as they make sacrifices for those that they love.”
“Where do they put them?”.
“They are tucked away in a little bottle, where the dreamer can unravel and admire them at will. But sometimes the bottle is accidentally left to float away in the great ocean of life, and the dreams escape. The dreamers forget they ever existed. This is where they end up.”
