Jeffries spent his life dreaming, half asleep, because the world around him as too barren, too hurtful to look at truthfully. He clung to things he believed when he was a child, but the more he learned, the more he realized life was cruel. With his eyes opened, he couldn’t go back to being the way he was before. He couldn’t believe the things that brought him comfort years ago. So he searched for a new dream, all his own, that might comfort him in the harsh reality of his world.
