I have dreamed of many approaches
vaguely like this one of Bijal and Deirdre going to the rebels. No one particular dream matches this
precisely, yet itís dream material in its own way, a composite picture with
embellishments. Same goes for nestling
into hay in a barn to sleep, though I never have in waking life.
I wrote the scene in the veterinary
office, although I have dreamed of Zanne stitching Don up in a veterinary
hospital in Duerlongh. But I did dream
that a mottled rat stalked her group in Vanikke.
Georgeís scene I deduced from dreams,
though not dreamed directly. Hints and
glimpses, clues in location and timing, things like that.
