[snip] Talking about dreams... Something rather strange happened to me yesterday morning. I had a dream where the language was neither English nor my L1 nor any other language, but *music*. It was a somewhat bizzare dream, almost cartoonish, and at the end, I had a very strong feeling/opinion about a certain matter. But instead of verbally saying it, I dreamt of an orchestra playing some powerful music that expresses my feelings. It wasn't just background music; it was as if the music was my "voice" to "speak" that opinion. (Unfortunately, I cannot for the life of me recall what that opinion was; all I remembered was that the orchestra built up to a grand and moving conclusion.) :-P I wonder if anyone else ever had this experience? :-) T -- If Java had true garbage collection, most programs would delete themselves upon execution. -- Robert Sewell
