I had an amazingly vivid dream this morning in the 45 minutes I stole at 7:30am after having been awake since 3am. I was standing outside, washing my hair in a storm, feeling the soapy bubbles slide down my skin in the cold rain. I washed until my skin and hair were stripped back into perfect cleanliness and just was buffeted by the drenching rain.
I'm not a dream expert, but I'd say that there's some cleansing symbology right there. I've made a decision, and basically life is too short to be miserable. As I drove to drop the girls off today, a ladybug flew into the car and crawled over my window. The symbol of luck. And as I watched her fly away in a flash of vermillion I felt my heart fly lighter as well.
