Somewhere, beyond the ordinary fantasies and reveries of ordinary people, there is a place where blue skies drape over majestic purple mountains that touch the heavens and beyond. A place where rainbows last forever, and where sunlight is golden and the stars and the moon are like glittering diamonds in the sky. A place where flowers grow and blossom all the year around, and where time never moves, never changes, never ages.

SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW

By Al Garcia

Somewhere, beyond the ordinary fantasies and reveries of ordinary people, there is a place where blue skies drape over majestic purple mountains that touch the heavens and beyond.  A place where rainbows last forever, and where sunlight is golden and the stars and the moon are like glittering diamonds in the sky.  A place where flowers grow and blossom all the year around, and where time never moves, never changes, never ages. 

Somewhere, beyond the ordinary fantasies and reveries of ordinary people, I have found a world ensconced by a veil of stardust, and sprinkled with fairy dust that makes my life like a magical dream that never ends.  Somewhere, beyond the beginning, but before the end, I find the middle -- where all is calm and pure, and where troubles and worries and quandaries of every type and kind were never meant to be.  A place where I feel safe to be me, unhampered and free to think, to reflect, and to simply believe in me.

Somewhere over the rainbow is where I want to be.  Where my thoughts and dreams and words come alive with passion and with force.  A place where memories come to life again, to be seen, to be heard, to be felt again, by me. 

I exist somewhere beyond the ordinary fantasies and reveries of ordinary people, and beyond the boundaries and the borders that define the acceptable and the tolerable, in a man-made world that binds and chains ordinary minds that were meant to roam and wonder free. 

If birds can fly on gossamer wings, if we can reach the stars and touch the magic of creation, and if time is endless and the vastness of space infinite, why can’t I live somewhere over the rainbow, where imagination and words can bring memories, thoughts and dreams to life?

In the end, we are all creators of dreams and of memories.  We are travelers in worlds beyond our fantasies and reveries.  We were created to create and to recreate.  So, we should be who we want to be, in the world that best completes us and fulfills us.

What a nice thing to say. Thank you. It's nice to be able to share my words and thoughts. And it is especially nice to be able to read what others have written. It's utterly amazing what different minds think about, and how they put their thoughts into words. So many talented individuals who know just how to connect words and make them come alive.

Thanks again. Much appreciated.
