The dream is conveying an important element of your self-identity and that is your untapped creativity. The mouth is connected to life forces and energy. The throat symbolizes conception and is linked to the Muse of Poetry. Hair represents energy too, also magical power.
So let’s put all of these symbols and connections together. Dream Momma believes you are in the process of pulling up your creative life force, which of course, is never-ending. The dream is telling you there is a great deal of unconscious energy about this as you don’t stop or slow down. The number 24 is a lucky number so she also believes you will eventually succeed in your goal that may be connected to poetry in some fashion.

These days, Diller is promoting her most recent book, Face It: What Women Really Feel as Their Looks Change, co-written with Jill Muir-Sukenick, Ph.D, and edited by Michele Willens. It's billed as a "psychological guide to help women deal with the emotions brought on by their changing appearances."
Diller will be making an appearance in Tampa. She will be traveling to Tampa as part of the I Can Do It! Conference (icanddoit.net), Nov. 11-13 at the Tampa Convention Center. I Can Do It! brings together a group of distinguished, bestselling self-help authors annually to present and hold interactive workshops.
Diller took some time before her Tampa visit to share some of her aging-beautifully insights with CL.
I didnt quite know what to expect when I agreed to interview Tampa plastic surgeon Dr. Charles McLaughlin. I knew that his family friend Gina Flynn-Carmack had been enthusiastic enough about him to place the winning bid for Buy the news in the Creative Loafing Holiday Auction, ensuring that CL would do a profile of the good doctor.
But plastic surgery? What did I know of the profession beyond Nip/Tuck and Cher? What would we talk about?
Well, as it turns out, lots. Because Dr. McLaughlin, aka Charlie, is a raconteur of the first order. From his memories of why he got into medicine, to his love of horses (which he breeds on a 40-acre farm in Wesley Chapel), to the art and antiques he collects, the 63-year-old North Carolina native has a story for everything.
On their way to helping us raise $19,000 for The Children's Home in the 2010 Online Holiday Auction, several lucky readers snagged a spot for themselves (or their friends and families) on the pages of Creative Loafing. In the print edition of CL that hit the streets Jan. 19, they got to see the results in content marked, aptly enough, SOLD! And in every instance, the winning bidders gave all or part of their bounty away.

Lip balm is an item many of us use every day. But did you know that the ingredients in many different brands of lip balm can actually dry out your lips? These ingredients, which include aluminum salts, preservatives, artificial flavors and petroleum-based products, can also be toxic and experts advise that they shouldn't be used anywhere near the mucus membranes.
So what's a safe alternative? Natural lip balms made with pure, non-toxic ingredients are much better for your skin. To be sure your balm is made with quality components, why not make your own?
