"If what you see out a particular window constantly disturbs you, then stop looking out that window."

A lose translation of -Thích Nhất Hạnh


My Superpower is my Imagination. I am so very fortunate that I have an incredibly powerful, highly developed imagination. So powerful in fact, that it allows me to live happily in another world. One that has none of the issues this one has.


No, this is not psychotic break, it is a conscious choice I make each day. To spend my time there instead of here. Is it escapism? Oh, hell yes it is! And happily so!


I am 3 years away from being 70. I put in my time here and I'm tired of the unending parade of tragedy that this world offers. I'm tired of the emotional and physical gravity of this place and the toll it extracts.


The book will get done eventually. But for now - it is my time to escape. I'm choosing to take an extended vacation and live in another reality with the friends and family I have there.


Until next time ...


Sing it, Joe ....
