Glen M's Experience

Experience description:   

My boss at work said something was wrong with a part of something we were building and blamed it on me.  Of course, I denied being at fault.  That night, I dreamed the man next to me at work had a splinter in his saw stop, which would cause the pieces he cut to be short.  When I reported to work the next day, I looked at the saw and found just exactly what I had dreamed!  I went immediately to the boss, reported my dream, and showed him the problem that existed.  He measured the part and found it to be short exactly the amount of the splinter in the saw stop!  Since that time I have been interested in dreams, and once during the early 1970's I kept a dream diary for three years.  I used that diary as an inspiration for my drawings.
