    i had a dream last night about Winston Churchill. I had traveled on this path and met him, in a corridor, he was very relaxed and went for a pee, and afterwards was enthralled by bubbles as he had never seen them before, i took a mouthful of washing up liquid and water from a tap and blew a couple and he managed to bounce one on his hand, then he followed me with his family, his wife and 2 children back along the path i had come. the path began to be covered over by water, and we had to wade through it, then it was swimming through it, as all the land was covered, and on our right over a bank was the sea. I saw a man standing on some rocks, as the sea waves were coming over his head. We found a raft, and got on, it had a sail, and it took us along, and we came to the end of the path. there was a gate, we found the way out, and back to a meeting I had left earlier, which was similar to my early schooling classroom, and where my husband was organizing little discussion groups.
