“I want to plant ‘wild oats,’ but reap only what’s tame;

“Have a wild time, ‘Live it up’ but slide by all the shame.

“I’ll be an exception to heredity’s plan;

“Watch me ‘fool around’ yet beat all the clan.”

Thou fool. Sow Right or Wrong; you’ll harvest the same.

You are invited to My Dreams.

My Dreams come without a table of contents. My Dreams can change without warning. My Dreams are almost always in color. My Dreams have made me laugh until I awakened myself (and maybe my wife) chuckling. My Dreams may have a problem (I’m not properly dressed for where I am, or there is a space through which I must squeeze, or etc.). My Dreams may have a positive (a buck I’d love to see in real life, or beautiful stones on the ground, or etc.). My Dreams can have total strangers and places I have never been. My Dreams may include you and if, upon awaking, I recall you, I try to pray for you. I have no control over My Dreams and go there un-invited myself 🙂 .
