I had an almost-dream just upon waking this morning. I saw these words written as though on a screen behind my eyes: “You are going to make a big mistake.”

Yikes. My first thought was that perhaps I had already overslept and missed something important, but I hadn’t. My second thought was, when has this not been true? I made a pretty big mistake just yesterday when I accidentally misscheduled a client. I feel bad about that one.

No doubt I am far from done making big mistakes. I can only hope the next one will be a necessary mistake, one that puts me in the path of something (or on the path to something) I could not have come to any other way.
