I dream regularly and intensely. Lesley’s first words in the morning, on seeing my haggard expression, are often: ‘How was it on planet Rowland last night?’
I sometimes feel that I lead two equally exhausting lives. Sometimes they collide.
Once I dreamt that I was consoling and trying to calm a young boy who was possessed and moaning horribly…..
Half awake, I was explaining the dream to Lesley, when I heard that same dreadful sound…..
…. which I then realised was our neighbour snoring!
Strangely, one of the recurring themes in my dreams is ‘unfinished work’: homework, thesis, project . . . so I’d better get back to work, as I’d like to sleep tonight!
