My name is Lianna, and you've just found my dream journal.
In this journal I will take the manifest content [what is perceived in the dream] of my dreams and analyze it to reveal the latent content[the underlying thoughts of the dream — why it was dreamt] in hopes of being able to sort out many stressful issues in my life.
I will keep these thoughts to myself and my hubby.
Thank you, and goodnight.
