The Great Goddess, a dream guide, a red rose and affirmation

validating a decision you made 25 years ago that has brought you to where you are today. I’m guessing you are in mid-life, a time when we all begin to self-reflect on our past decisions. Some people get depressed (If only I had married him instead of HIM) others, like yourself, feel affirmed.

Your job is to percolate on why it is Morley Safer giving you a red rose. Why not Jay Leno giving you an orchid?  Or Eminem handing you a 3 A.M. Travis Barker Remix?  So dear, affirmed lady, what does Morley Safer (note the word safe in Safer and mor in Morley) mean to you? Did your decision those 25 years ago lead to a safer, more secure life? I bet it did.

In your current safe and secure life, Dream Momma wonders if it is time for you to embrace your Great Goddess within and get involved in a worthwhile endeavor, if you haven’t done so already. Your dream says it’s time!

I normally don't have dreams stick in my mind but this one was way far out there to say the least. Any clues as to what it might mean?” (sic)

I sure do! It’s a wonderful, affirming dream. Your unconscious, via your dream guide, is
