Nerina, thanks so much for the follow up. What wonderful experiences!
Just a quick note about recording dreams: I keep a pen, notebook and a tiny book light next to my bed so when I wake from a dream that I want to remember I can write it down immediately and nothing is lost. With the small light I don't even have to get up to do this, so it's easier to get back to sleep.
From time to time, I do consider that I might be mad. Like any self-respecting lunatic, however, I am always quick to dismiss any doubts about my sanity.
