I was talking to my daughter this afternoon and while we were on the phone Ivy and Clover were out in the garden making mud pies- and then Clover- to her mother's alarm- started running around with a kitchen knife.
Was the dream a sort of cockamamie foreshadowing of things that hadn't happened yet- of the kind J.H. Dunne writes about in An Experiment with Time? Most of Dunne's instances were equally inconsequential.
I rather think so. And to make the whole thing all the more timey-wimey it so happens the conversation my daughter and I were having was all to do with prediction and prophecy.
