My older sister got me into this in the 1970s when I was in my early teens.
I would cite where it came from if I had the foggiest idea. Do help if you know as I think we all deserve to be recognised (and occasionally rewarded) for the words we write.
Extraordinary as the mind is, reading a few lines about a dream I had 35 years ago does bring it all back.
Actually I can recall a dream I had when I as about four, being strangled by Rolf Harris. I asked my mother recently if my father had a beard at the time, he didn't, though there were plenty of times he said 'I could strangle you.'
That's it, I wanted him to be like Rolf Harris but he was rubbish at painting and wanted to kill me
So that's explained, 44 years on.
Nothing like giving it time ...
