But none of them knew why. There was something singularly special about Lake Crystal Clear Waters. Sometimes when she swims in it, she can visit other worlds.

Little Texas

by Tony Mims

If you don’t honor your history,

you won’t respect your future.

If you only live in the now

you can get lost in the many illusions

that will only feed the pitfalls

of your own personal confusion.

That’s why the memories of your home

should be a force of the positive and the strong.

It’s the roots of positive experience of growing up

that help your vision stay focused on what is real

and gives you solid meaning to how you should feel

in a world that sometimes gives life very little meaning.

 

The history of Little Texas goes way back.

About twenty years after they had to let the slaves free

A long time ago the people of the seaside city of Mara had everything that they needed, and knew how to talk with the creatures of the sea. But times changed.

Mark only knows what it is like to serve the Inlanders who conquered Mara long before he was born. He is angry that his mother is disrespected, and doesn’t want her to have to work so hard.  Impatient for change, he decides to take action.

When the King sends Mark to jail, Mark dreams of a giant fish that speaks to him. He carves her picture on his cell wall and the Jailer punishes him for his handiwork. But a mysterious little girl with flowing green hair comes from the beach and gives him a blue stone to paint with.

Einstein’s Mind

Announcing the digital release of “Einstein’s Mind,” a story from the book Dreamscape, Real Dreams Really Make a Difference. Following the positive response to the release of the live recording on WBAI Radio, of “Mella and the Python Healer,” “Einstein’s Mind,” is from the same radio broadcast.

The eleven minute story describes Albert’s childhood, including that he hated school and renounced his German citizenship while still a minor. The high school dropout eventually found himself in the Swiss Alps where he theorized about relativity. Fact checked by Dr. Michio Kaku, the story illustrates the idea of relativity by taking listeners on a train ride.

Accompaniment on upright bass is by Bobby Vidal and a soundtrack created by Cooper-Moore.

You can listen to the entire story for free right here on this page, or purchase it now for $1.99 at cdbaby.com. You can also search for the title on Spotify, I-Heart, Pandora and other internet radio stations.

Proopcast

SMITW_new_logo_libsynMy daughter Crystal Clear Waters and my friend Charlotte Taylor went to the live recording of this podcast on Friday night in Brooklyn. They gave Greg Proops a copy of my book Dreamscape, which he read from during the show. It was fun to listen to someone else read from the book!
