From the post "Lachrymosa" at Happy Land--AJ is one of my favorite writers and he knows more about movies than anyone I have known:
I think you were in my dream last night. We went to a countryside in an alternative world, like Alice’s Looking Glass World. I’d been there before. We strolled alongside a river, watching rowboats that propelled themselves away from us, and groups of people picnicking on the hills that lined the bank. There were women dressed in the Mennonite style, and Colonial musketeers.
