It's time for cotton-candy. Come along and enjoy.

Life is a series of adventures. Each one is unique and exciting. See the world in a new way, like you have never seen it before. You are a wonderful piece of hard candy, a tasty treat. Aladdin’s lamp was never so wonderful as you. You create life out of your imagination, and fill it with excitement. Children, pets, friends and loved ones notice, and gather around to see. See? Here they come now!


The power source is you. It is true . You are fire that melts hearts with love, the kind that makes you feel warm all over. You enrich lives. Has it never occurred to you, that you are the brightest light in the sky?  Look up and see you. The incredible you, the greatest dancing orb in the heavens. You are the ruler of the Monopoly board. You are the show dog, the race-car, the black top-hat and cane,  and the tap-dancing shoe on the foot of the red tailed ringmaster of your own Boardwalk circus, taming the wild animals and directing the clown's procession. Today is your day to get of jail free. Don't miss this opportunity. Go ahead. Cash in. GO, GO, GO. Pass it and collect that two-hundred dollars!


Barnum-Bailey is not the greatest show on Earth, you are. See the clown painting a happy face? The one acting out the puppet show and pulling the strings, delighting the children seated all around? Oh, look, that’s you. Stand back. The grand performance is about to begin. The dancing dogs and the marching circle of great pachyderms, each grabbing the next one's ropy  tail, are all performing for you.

Blind no more now you see,

The whole ELEPHANT,

Standing tusked before you.

See what  a funny creature!

When you look at it like that,

Life is an excellent dream.


O’ amazing creature,  extraordinary catch of the day, a far-flung universe is flowing and screaming forth from you at the speed of light. Open your eyes and see. Once you realize the creator is in you, and come out of your trance, you can dance any tune you choose. There will be no Saharan dune you cannot climb. No dungeon you cannot explore. All the ogres drop their clubs and bow the knee at your masterful appearance. Dragon fire in you, life becomes a magical adventure. You are the great magician.


Stand on the endless shore, where you can build great sand castles and splash in the surf. Tickle toes in a million frothy, bubbles. Let the waves wash over your feet.  Feels good doesn't it? I love the beach. Nature makes me hungry. Picnic? The wienies and sausages are already sizzling on the grill; can you smell the deliciousness in the fresh sea air? Ah, sea, sand and surf. Life is fun again. Go, get a running start and SPLASH big!
