I didn't sleep so well last night and, at some point when there was a bit of light, I was having some sort of bizarre dream about Russian places and having to drag the Romanov family around Russia because they could not decide which one they wanted to stay in.

At this point a skein of geese passed over, calling to each other.

Well, I can tell you that when a noise like that gets into a very strange dream you are immediately wide awake and ready for anything.
