Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.Pablo Picasso
Water rolls in with the moon at high tide, as stars flicker behind a curtain of space.
I can sleep through this dream until morning, then collect seashells and treasures of ships sunken centuries ago.
The beach is my tomorrow. The moonlight, a distraction.

Based on a recent comment I made on the web site of a friend, I wrote this short story this morning. Entitled, She’s A Dream, I hope that you’ll enjoy reading it.
I rested on a tropical sandy cay, comfortable in a low seat with my bare feet in warm, shallow water. Small waves carried the tranquil and continuous rhythm of ocean currents on shore, breaking into sand and drowning in retreat.
With a cooling but mild summer breeze rustling palm fronds through the trees on shore behind me, I dreamed I heard a British woman from the past – Clementine – sounding a conch shell from a hillside in the distance.
I was at peace as the sun grew old, slowly dropping from the sky, setting colors of gold, orange and peach in brilliant illumination across scattered clouds on the horizon. Then, on the edge of time, sunlight refracted through a level plane in the ocean, casting a bright, blinding green flash!
Moments passed into minutes, until my sight returned. And, then I saw her – the silhouette of a beautiful woman slowly walking along the shoreline in my direction. Long, flowing hair wafting on thermals, hips swaying slightly with each casual step, I could tell that she wasn’t very tall, and watched closely as she approached.
She was barefoot with a lovely figure, suntanned, wearing a bikini top and fishnet skirt, and also wore a small diamond piercing on her nose. Immediately, I was drawn to the most beautiful pair of brown eyes I’d ever seen…she was a goddess!
I was captured by a vision of her beauty, when suddenly she spoke –
Hello my dear friend, Phil. How are you today?
What?! I’d never seen this woman before – though very much wish that I had. Who was she? I was on a remote tropical island in the Caribbean… At that moment, a small coconut detached from a palm tree, dropping on my head and knocking me to the ground.
When later I regained my senses, I was alone and realized that she was only a dream.

It may be night, but there’s still so much to see – simply look around.

Enjoy my artistic rendition of an old, rustic cabin missing windows and roofing, exposed to the elements of nature and ravages of time. The view reminds me of peering through a dirt-covered screen, trying to discern more accurately the details of a distant structure.
