I’ve had a number of things in my dreams this morning that I hardly ever think about during my waking hours. First I was driving Mr and Mrs Ogino and their daughter Chihiro around the suburbs of Belfast in a Vauxhall Viva. Now, Chihiro is the protagonist in “Spirited Away” and Mr Ogino has a brand new, top-of-the-range Audi so I can’t imagine what he and his family would be doing riding around in a clanky old car that’s nearly forty years old.
Later on, as I was sitting on the stairs, Elvis Presley was practising his singing in the hall. I didn’t know what song it was but I think it was one of his hits from his latter years.
So, Mr Ogino and family and Mr Presley, welcome to my subconscious.
