No matter what JOB I have or HOUSE I live in or CAR I drive or ROMANCE I embrace, I am MORE than ALL those things!

When I was a boy, my mother used to always tell me to stop my daydreaming and join everybody in "the real world." I recall telling her once that I didn't like it in the "real" world because it didn't seem like a great place to live. Well, here I sit almost 27 yrs after her death and I STILL feel the same way. Even more so, actually. Every time I sign onto the internet I read about children being abducted or out-and-out murdered. Husbands killing wives. Wives killing husbands. People simply killing for what seems like the sport of it. I read about people losing their homes. And people starving for a meal. Every day it's something more horrific than the day before. I don't like it. I don't like it one bit. In MY world --- the world in which everybody has a lovely home, and great friends and excellent health --- in MY world everybody is happy to be ALIVE! Period. --- If my mother was alive today, I wonder what she'd think of "the real world." I wonder if she'd even for a moment want to join me in MINE.
