“There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.”
~ Douglas H. Everett
It was never going to be a smooth ride…
Naive, I stepped right into Love’s wormhole
Believing for fairness, just times and tides
Collecting bright vials filled with “maybe’s”
But Fate had beaucoup trials slated…
Consequences dependent not on whether
I faithfully paid my tithes, attended church
But which way I’d decide at every crossroads.
I was ill-equipped to make wise choices.
Will the voices inside ne’er cease harsh chide?

“I’ve wrestled with reality for 35 years, and I’m happy to say I finally won out over it.”
Elwood P. Dowd, “Harvey”
Harvey is a 1950 American comedy-drama film based on Mary Chase‘s play of the same name, directed by Henry Koster, and starring James Stewart and Josephine Hull. The story is about a man whose best friend is a pooka named Harvey – in the form of a six foot eight tall invisible rabbit.
Elwood P. Dowd (Stewart) is a middle-aged, amiable though somewhat eccentric man whose best friend is an invisible 6 foot, 31/2inch tall rabbit named Harvey. As described by Dowd, Harvey is a pooka, a benign but mischievous creature from Celtic mythology who is especially fond of social outcasts (like Elwood).
