"I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a life. I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

I have been having some very anxious and scary dreams for the last week. Early July is when my mother was diagnosed, so I know I have a lot of stress leading up to this month. Not to mention my brother in laws brother has just been diagnosed with lung cancer- they now say it’s at stage 3 and he will begin chemotherapy and radiation treatment the same place my mom received hers, after July 4.
Life and death is much more important, however since the restructuring at work yesterday (Happy Pride!)- I am also stressed and concerned about my job and stability…

Sunday night I had a dream where I was in a photo gallery- I remember looking into a case which held photos- and I was shocked to see old photo’s of me, my family and my mom displayed. There were three cases which held my photos. I started crying and was angry- I found the curator and said –these are my photo’s- photos of my family that I lost- and my mom died a couple years ago- and I need these photo’s back! The curator told me she too had lost her mother- and apologized for upsetting me with the display- she said she found the photo’s- which I then remembered myself playing in the woods by a stream with three boxes of photo’s- which were carried off by the current…

Last night I had a dream there was an evil spirit tugging on my legs, trying to pull me off the bed- the person laying next to me grabbed my upper body- and was holding me back from being pulled off by this (or these) spirits. Next I remember screaming “mommy” and waking myself up…

Aries Horoscope for week of June 30, 2005
A reader wrote the following letter to Parade magazine columnist Marilyn vos Savant: "When you're asleep and dreaming about performing calorie-burning activities such as running, jumping, and flying, do you burn more calories in reality as opposed to when you're dreaming about doing something low-impact?" If you wrote me an inquiry like that, Aries, I'd say this: "Yes, definitely. In fact, what you do in your dreams this week will have at least as much impact on your waking life as anything you do in your waking life. Keep a pen and notebook by your bed so you can keep track of late-breaking developments."
We will ignore the cult of doom and gloom and embrace the cause of zoom and boom. We will laugh at the stupidity of evil and hate, and summon the brilliance to praise and create. No matter how upside-down it all may temporarily appear, we will have no fear because we know this secret: Life is crazily in love with us—wildly and innocently in love with us. The universe always gives us exactly what we need, exactly when we need it.
