Open your Eyes and Dream!

I was seven when I had my first lucid dream. Of course I didn't know the official name, but I did sense "I know I am dreaming." I was at the landing of our creaky staircase of my childhood home, three steps from the bottom. I saw my surroundings from my point of view, noticing… Continue reading Open your Eyes and Dream!

Amazing Today, Philosophy


I spend a lot of time day-dreaming. An amazing thing I've witnessed  is that if one dreams intensely enough, and with enough passion, and with sincere intentions, dreams become real.  If you hold a dream in your head, you will later be able to hold it in your hand. The Horsehead Nebula is a dark… Continue reading Dream

Dream Your Life

I've always been a positive thinker.  Perhaps it started at an early age when my mother encouraged me to do my best at everything, and that I could obtain anything in life with determination.  Fortunately, it does not take much effort for me to be positive. As I gaze at the wonderful objects and people… Continue reading Dream Your Life

Follow Your Spark

After only ten minutes, James tightly wrenched the last nut of his drum set and cuffed the headphones over his ears. "I'm ready. Start recording." I really liked James. At only 20 years old, he was already playing the Louisville club scene drumming for the Buster Brown band. He was tall with groomed blond hair,… Continue reading Follow Your Spark

Do What You Do Best

I walked into a popular restaurant known for chicken and was surprised to see a sign on the counter saying, "Try our new beef tacos." I also remember going to an establishment known for beef.  A large poster advertised a new addition: turkey sandwiches.  And, come to think of it, it seems that nearly every… Continue reading Do What You Do Best

Begin Now

I'm certain my mother has been the largest influence in my life. Looking back, I'm not sure if she really believed the positive words she spoke to me when I was a child, but she was certainly successful in making me believe her words. "The time to begin is now."  This became a worn out… Continue reading Begin Now

The Small Farm

I loved early Saturday mornings.  Homework only took fifteen minutes the night before and I pretended the weekend was a miniature vacation.  Our house faced southwest and the sun would pour brightly through our old wooden framed windows.  I would lie belly down on the living room floor and watch cartoons. Mom would make biscuits… Continue reading The Small Farm

No Dream is Impossible

"What do you mean, you can't do it?" Diamond Mike Watson asked the small-framed Vietnamese programmer. After five hours of tinkering at the master computer at the headquarters of Gallery of Diamonds jewelers, Lan Dong finally admitted it would be impossible to make Diamond Mike's demands come true. "This may take thirty to forty more… Continue reading No Dream is Impossible
