Turning to look at her mom, baby Jessica said, “Mommy, why do you have a door on your forehead?” 

It was after lunch and Jessica sat on her mom's lap holding her picture book, Creatures of the Forest.

Oh honey, nothing awful. It's so I can get my bad thoughts out of my head," replied her mom.

Jessica turned to her book and touched the face of a bear. “Mommy, how come daddy doesn't have a door on his forehead too?”

Your father has a door by his heart to let love in.”

Jessica rubbed her hand along the page, petting the bear. "How come I don't have a door?"

"You will, sweetie. When you grow up, you get a door where you need it the most."

Turning to reach for her mom. "Can I touch your door?"

Her mom leaned her head back, "No Honey, only I can do that. It's not nice to touch other people's doors."

"Oh, okay." Jessica turned back to her book and turned the page to a picture of four robins perched on a tree branch. She touched each one. "Can I get more than one door?"

"Oh God No!" exclaimed her mom. Calming herself, "You don't want that, honey. Only the very very bad people need more than one door. You don't want to be one of them."

Jessica smiled, "I can't wait until I grow up and get a door," and she turned the page to an owl.

"I think I can," whispered her mom.

The Caped Crusader

Clarke was unusual for a caveman, he was a superhero. He could leap over tall buildings. 

His problem was that there were no tall buildings and would not be any for another ten thousand years. It was quite a dilemma for our superhero so he was reduced to leaping into tall trees. His current problem was that he had no superpowers to leap out of tall trees.

One day while climbing down from a tall tree, Clarke watched a squirrel leap from a tree. The squirrel spread its excess skin and floated to the ground. Eureka! problem solved. 

Clarke ran to the cave of his beloved girlfriend, Lois. After much description to Lois of the squirrel, Lois sewed him a scarf made from the lightest and softest bear hide. 

Clarke donned his new scarf around his neck and shoulders. He leaped into the nearest tall tree. He jumped from the tree, spread his scarf, and fell face first into the ground. 


Clarke sought out his friend Einstein. Clarke explained what he had seen of the squirrel, what he wanted to do,…

Deep Thoughts

I am amazed how one thought leads to another.

There I was, walking along the street, when thoughts hit me - boobs, wonder if that button will hold. Six inch red pumps, I look so tall and so leggy. Yippee, I won two dollars in the lottery.

None of those thoughts are mine. I read minds but sometimes I wonder why bother? People are so ordinary and dull at times. Too much boobs, too much shoes, too much thinking money.

I walk down the street and from every mind I get - sweet babies, fun shopping, beautiful shoes, pretty girl, cute guys, loving girlfriend. hugging and kissing, and some other intimate thoughts I will just as well skip. Passing hundreds on the street and nothing new, nothing interesting.

It gets boring when my friends tell me about their vacations when I have already read their minds. I think of them talking to me like watching a re-run of a movie.

But sometimes I get an interesting thought from people and it usually starts with anger. 

When people are angry, they let loose…
