Outside, the ocean was crashing, waves hitting sand, then pulling back to sea. I thought of everything being washed away, again and again. We make such messes in this life, both accidentally and on purpose. But wiping the surface clean doesn't really make anything neater. It just masks what is below. It's only when you really dig down deep, go underground, that you can see who you really are.

There?s no way that Michael Jackson or whoever Jackson should have a million thousand droople billion dollars and then there?s people starving. There?s no way! There?s no way that these people should own planes and there people don?t have houses. Apartments. Shacks. Drawers. Pants! I know you?re rich. I know you got 40 billion dollars, but can you just keep it to one house? You only need ONE house. And if you only got two kids, can you just keep it to two rooms? I mean why have 52 rooms and you know there?s somebody with no room?! It just don?t make sense to me. It don?t.

Harry Potter isn?t real? Oh no! Wait, wait, what do you mean by real? Is this video blog real? Am I real if you can see me and hear me, but only through the internet? Are you real if I can read your comment but I don?t know who you are or what your name is or where you?re from or what you look like or how old you are? I know all of those things about Harry Potter. Maybe Harry Potter?s real and you?re not.

...if something is there, you can only see it with your eyes open, but if it isn't there, you can see it just as well with your eyes closed. That's why imaginary things are often easier to see than real ones.

There are going to be times when you learn more about the world you?re entering and feel defeated when you see the gap between the ideal and the reality? But that?s something we?ll all face. The people that face those obstacles and overcome them are people whose dreams come true.
