All significant truths are private truths. As they become public, they cease to be truth; they become facts, or at best, part of the public character; or at worst catchwords.

The stuff that dreams are made of!
I know you have all heard more than enough about the riots, but last night I had a dream that was clearly based on them. In my dream we were holidaying in the Cameron Highlands (a place we used to visit when I was a child and we lived in Singapore) and we were woken up at 3 in the morning by the sound of disturbances and forest fires in the distance. Kev was keen to journey across the island to confront the rioters. I won't tell you the rest of the dream as it gets increasingly bizarre, but when I awoke I wondered about the fact that it was so specifically the Cameron Highlands. I soon realised that, of course, this was my mind playing about with words- the idea of David Cameron and the moral high ground perhaps being suggested.
You may be interested to hear that Kev's analysis of the dream was that teachers get too much time off over the Summer and that it might be time for me to get back to work...
