Birds & an Ex-Prime Minister

There was one black bird and one white one - let's call them dreambirds - and I had to judge them in an international competition. They were playful like dogs and big and cheeky, rolling over to be tickled. We were all in a pen - the birds, me and the spectators. We linked up, hands on each others' shoulders, and Tony Blair was behind me, crying. I dream about birds a lot, but I don't recall ever having dreamt about Tony Blair.

One black, one white - very auspicious. It just is, trust me. But Tony has to go, crying or not. If he appears again, tell him nicely about the Bentley Wildfowl Museum in Sussex. He can go and cry there instead.

Clearly one bird is Palestine, one bird is Israel - being judged in an international arena - and Tony is crying because, well, wouldn't you if you were in his position?

Naah, clearly one bird is one of Lowri Turner's children, whereas the other one is also one of Lowri Turner's children, no?

hey signs, auspicious, really? i hope so.

hey darren, hadn't thought of it this way, but quite like this interpretation except i wasn't stressed in the dream, it was quite fun, i was combing the birds too. . .

hey trousers, but lowri is just too obvious, don't you think? i want my dreams to be more subtle, though there is often a spoonful (sometimes a big tablespoon, sometimes a teaspoon) of reality in there.

hey gt, i do dream of birds a lot, they are usually big & beefy, not wee fragile fluttery things. sometimes they die, i still recall vividly the peacock who killed itself jumping out the window...i remember dreams 70% of the time. i used to write them down, but not anymore.
