Andras Jones (Dreams and Synchronicities)

In a sense, Andras Jones has always lived in a world that overlaps with dreaming. His father was a dream researcher. In the 1980s, Andras starred in ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street 4' (he also appeared on 'Saved By The Bell' and in films with Drew Barrymore, Alice Cooper and Jeffrey Combs). All the while, he has been conjuring his own world with a guitar and a head full of clever, funny, angry songs. 

In this episode of ‘All Your Days,’ we join Andras’s journey, exploring the triumphs and frustrations of wrangling with dreams and, as a writer about synchronicity, how in giving attention to different ways of perceiving the "real" world Andras has redefined his own dream and its pursuit.
