Riding On "E"
When I was young I was always broke, and I learned how to drive my car with a gas tank that was almost empty. The needle would be on “E”, but I knew how to manage that. If it was on the right side of the “E”, I had a few more miles left.

A Day Time Dream
Maybe it has something to do with my diet, or it could be my strange sleeping habits, and it is possible that the activities of any given day contribute to my numerous dreams that I have every night. Whatever the reason, I dream almost every night, and when I wake up each morning, I can remember parts, if not all of my dreams.

Does Superman Need A Veil?
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have super-human strength? Take Superman for an example.

Book Covers
I’ve been thinking lately that life is like a library where you see shelves of books from afar as bands of color with a variety of widths and heights. At first, that’s all you know about them. As you get closer, you can see that they are divided into sections according to their subjects and types, but you still can’t read the titles.

Why I Don't Like To Fly
One of my favorite movies is the “Wizard of Oz.” When I was a child I would watch this show every time it was on television. I’m not sure why I was enthralled by this show, but I have never grown tired of it.
