Finding the words

A filmmaker being interviewed on public radio said he likes to work at night because then he is "close to the dreaming mind" and hence more creative. Yet how to speak with the language of the dreaming mind? Joyce's "Finnegans Wake" is perhaps as intelligent a grab as one could make -- so much so it's almost unitelligible. Fiona MacLeoed said Oran was the dremaing mind of Iona -- woven from light and shadow, depth and surface, well and spire, music and language, moon and harp. Brother, sister, father, muse, daughter, old slaughterer, descender, bone flute, fish totem, how would you conduct my song?
