Error trying to run node red --safe

Well I've done something wrong and NR just keeps crashing, so I thought I'd run in safe mode to launch the editor. Here is what I get. Any ideas how to resolve? What is "red"?

pi@HomeController:~/.node-red $ node red --safe
throw err;

Error: Cannot find module '/home/pi/.node-red/red'

Try node-red --safe instead.

Thank you bakman2. Silly error on my part.
