Dreamt I was saving swans last night. Only they were not white. They were 'duck' coloured.
I was up to my knees in canal water. I could feel the width and weight of the neck just under the head in my right hand as I held the body under my left arm.
I wanted to put the swan into safe water but didn't want to let go of holding it.
Did let go and then worried that the canal was a dead end......but a swan/duck doesn't need a neverending river does it?
