I dreamt of shooting stars that turned into fireworks, leaving sparkling trails across the sky and then bringing untamed starlight down to earth.

Hundreds of teenagers were restoring a pyramid. One of the innovations – true to original intent, it was claimed – was the addition of lots of growing things. Specially created vases were part of the pyramid, interspersed over the rock face. Trailing vines and flowers covered the corners. The etchings on the pyramid’s stones were intricate paths for a riverflow of rainwater, each leading to water collection in the vases. It was quite striking, an amazing achievement of design.
