  6. Well if you really want to know :-) ...I woke up several times solstice night trying to be very aware to take a mental note of what I was dreaming about. The next morning all I could remember was that I was sleeping in this big room with floor to ceiling windows that had white flowing curtains in them. The curtains were blowing lightly in the night breeze. It was kind of a scary, spooky, desolate place, and when I looked down at the floor, next to my bed, a rat scooted by!

    I keep meaning to look up the significance of the rat in my daughter's dream book...I'll keep you posted if the dream comes to pass! Maybe there is someone that I need to apologize to :-)

  7. Well...I LOVE the flowy white curtains on the floor to ceiling windows...feels so angelic. Reminds me of a famous painting I love. The rat is the opposite of the flowing white... maybe the yin/yang of life. Have a beautiful flowy evening, my friend:)xoxoxo
