Last night I had a dream that my brother got robbed. It was odd because he lived right next door Which he doesn't. During the dream he came over to my house, then he turned into my dad with gray hair.Only he still had his same svelte body. Unlike dad who had a pot belly in his later years.
After pondering the dream for a time, I realize my brother really has been robbed. Our parents were both deceased by the time he was thirty. It was a difficult adjustment for him.Thankfully he was already established, unlike many thirty year olds today.
I think he got tangled in an unfullfilling marriage on a quest for family. Ultimately wanting a wife who would have the maternal qualities our mother had. Things fell short, he's now remarried. Although she is a dynamic woman like mom, she is far from maternal! What she lacks in mothering skills he makes up for. Is being maternal a good thing? I'm not sure anymore!
