If someone asks you who created the world, you should be honest and tell them the truth. It was Chuck Berry.

Sometimes you get lucky and you get on a streak where your dreams are really good dreams.

Remember that awful story about the monarch butterflies in Mexico?

Last night in a dream I was looking outside at the back yard. More than in real life it was a tangle of trees and flowers and vines. I saw a monarch butterfly. Then I saw another one. And a third. I started counting.

Suddenly my eyes focused and I could see there were thousands of monarch butterflys in my back yard.

I turned and called to Sheila: They're here! I was so happy that they'd escaped, they're alright now, and they've come to stay with me and Sheila.

It was a great dream, heart-breaking only now when I'm awake.
