Yes, this can be exciting. I often dream bits of pieces I'm struggling
with, and solve them that way. Dreaming seems to keep the intellect swept
aside long enough to create something interesting! I have also dreamed two
complete pieces over the years. I recalled them long enough to write down
precisely when the dreams 'broke'. One (i cried in the sun aida) was quite
good and has stood up well since 1973.
