Wow … Half of the month is gone and I flat did not notice, how about you?
You ever lie in your bed, that special early time in the morning, where you are not exactly asleep, but you still have your eyes closed? I have just had another nice dream, one of those sweet dreams, where you just don’t want to open your eyes, and lose the image in your brain that has brought you release from the trials of life.

Some men dream of crossing oceans
Some men dream one day to fly
Spend their whole lives out there floating
