Day Dreams exist to make you realise that yes indeed you did just doze off for a few minutes at your desk when you should have been working. You might even have snored.
The main purpose of snoring is to alert your loved ones and intimate partners that although they are important to your sense of well being, acceptance and belonging they are not as important as your need to fully self-express even while asleep and if they don’t like it they can lump it.
In physiological mumbo-jumbo snoring is caused by the inflation of the Snorkus Reticulii Flap which is invisible during the day time or when one is in an upright position but visible at night or while lying horizontally. The SR Flap is believed to have developed over a million years ago to help scare away predatory mammals on the plains of Winnebego.

Everyone who ever lived is a student, or was at some time. Having a student mentality is the absolute guaranteed best way to get through life. For no one ever knew everything or even came close. Being a student in the truest and original sense of the word means you are open to experience, to the well-considered advice and discoveries of those who went before you. Many people look down on students as if they are a troublesome weight that the ‘rest of us’ have to carry. Nothing could be further from the truth. The student is usually bright, inquisitive, ethical, disciplined, focused, balanced and smart. Things many non-students can never hope to be.
Proof, if we needed it, that money does not buy taste.
Used to be a time when a book store would stock whatever the individual owner decided according to what his customers were likely to be interested in. Nowadays a book store is like a large three-dimensional billboard that serves to advertise goods that are available for sale at the on-line shop.
