I wrote this earlier this month but never posted it!
Today there was a school bus stopped outside of the State House downtown and a bunch of Catholic School munchkins were getting on board. I assumed that their field trip was coming to an end. A dream sprouted in my mind. I wanted to throw snow balls at the bus and yell, “Hey you Harry Potter lovers! When you grow up, you’re gonna throw snow balls at school buses full of kids!” Then they would know and more importantly I would know what I have grown up to be.
I did not do it. I never became a pro baseball player either. Still, it is nice to have dreams. Mirages of what we want keep us hoping and breathing. I will eventually accomplish one dream or meet my fate: Trampled by a bus full of elementary schoolers and their angry teachers.
