Be careful what you wish for, people tell us from the moment we begin to reach and dream, you just might get it. And at times, that kind of warning may even sound like encouragement, ironically, and perhaps that’s where the trouble begins. . .we like the unpredictable uncertainty of longing too. . .the escapist notion of “if only”. . . “as soon as”. . .”at which time”
Somewhere over the rainbow. . .

But so much for escapism when you get there. . .because where did that kind of talk get Dorothy anyway. . .the flyer into the flying plan. . .

like a rolling stone. . .
