Everything you ever dreamed

"There are powers inside of you which, if you could discover and use, would make of you everything you ever dreamed or imagined you could become.” ~ Orison Swett Marden

Old gas station signs

Hey, baby

She used to make fun of her dad whenever he’d take their family down all those back country roads during summer vacations.

(Think “The Truman Show.”) There are days when I just go through the motions, not really paying ...
