    How do you picture yourself in daydreams while you are dealing with the mundane issues of everyday life?

    I often fantasize that I'm flying Howard Hughes's

    "Spruce Goose".

    A million or so years ago, when dinosaurs roamed the prairie and I had hair on top, I had a band that did okay on the local level and everybody thought we were going to get the big record deal that used to define success as a musician. For a couple of years we had MANY people talking to us with the assumption that a record deal was a foregone conclusion.

    Then we didn't anymore.

    Around the time Nirvana came out our audience just sort of evaporated. In six months, almost exactly. we went from playing for a crowd of three thousand to playing for a crowd named Ted.

    And Ted was a nice guy and all...but I made forty cents that night and I had to drive to Oklahoma to do it.

    My most common daydream is being back in that phase of my life and having it work out.

    "Lame"? Hardly! I was in my mid-forties when I first visited Disneyland. Damn near wept when I walked through the front gates! Always wanted to go as a kid but my folks couldn't afford it. I feel blessed being able to take my family on that trip!

    (Did Disney World in 2012!)

    My daydream self is tame in comparison to my actual self. Only I travel a lot more.

    My Walter Mitty is to be the studio executive that fires Ben Stiller from every future film he attempts to make.
