what dreams may come

Jessica Duchen is a rather neat person. She also has an aesthetic sensibility. That unusual condition can sometimes cause a special dream to happen.

In fact, I can imagine an unwritten Jessica character appearing in Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain. At the Davos sanitarium, she is sitting for breakfast at one of the dining hall tables. Hans Castorp, at another table, overhears her telling about last night's dream:

"Has anyone seen my dream aria?"
