Mario Lanza

Died of a heart attack at thirty eight years of age. On his Wiki page, Hedda Hopper is quoted, saying, "his smile, which was as big as his voice, was matched with the habits of a tiger cub, impossible to housebreak."
Enjoy this you tube mash-up of Mario Lanza singing, Sweet Mystery of Life and Mel Brooks', Young Frankenstein. Wonderful.

I consider my future, or at least, I hope it's my future. What is the axiom? If you want to hear God laugh, tell him your plans. So with a nod to God, the Great Maker, I consider my future. In this future, I can picture myself with a trailer resting on a pad in Brownsville, Tx or some other city located coastally. I find myself sitting beneath the sparse shade provided by a palm tree of some sort, preparing a rod and reel for some coastal fishing, where for lunch, I'll be fishing for some red snapper.
It's a day sunny, breezy and generous with time.
A breeze blows through my thoughts and the dream dematerializes, where a new one forms, behind the busy shutters of my mind.
