1 – Greet pigeons with benevolence. They just might do the wibblywobbly dance for you.
2 – Learn a silly word a day, like; Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia – Fear of the number 666.
3 – Now, banish that word from your mind! There really isn’t any sense for such a silly word.
4 – Step in wet and soggy puddles as often as you can. Ideally, without the aid of goulashes!
5 – Take long bike rides, preferably, up hill. This gives one a great sense of accomplishment.
6 – Learn a fine art, like; MOOING or HOOTING! This is very good to woo the woe-be-me’s away, especially, on drizzly days.
7 – Join the very Secret and Hushhush Society of Foliaphiles!
8 – Acknowledge your Shadow more…meaning, don’t just talk to him on Sunny days.
9 – Practice your technique of Mind Gliding from a cozy comfy chair, everyday, or even twice a day, if you are so inclined. It really is a wonderous way of traveling.
10 – Finally, you must practice your leaping and bounding a top your bed before wishing all the stars in the sky a very, bonne nuit!
Being one with your Polka-Dottiness is quite an accomplishment, indeed!

While romping around the clover field Winston Waldon Williams happened upon a curious creature, and then a most enchanting conversation began!

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended:
That you have but slumbered here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Orson Handel, Future Music-Maker, as Puck for the Underwater and by the Sea Series… And Wild Handel as Puck’s Dream. Photography by Anastasia Traina ~ 2016 ~
Accountant Adella Minch lives in the Maison D’ Pear
She measuredly calls it her little castle in the air
Although, it is indeed, very much in disrepair…
Still, she can’t help thinking, if only I had a nice wingback chair.
Then, my little yardstick of a life would really be beyond compare!
