There’s something wrong with my brain—or at least that’s what I thought, for too many years. Turns out I was wrong. It turns out my brain is my super power. You know like Superman. If you saw Superman’s large ‘S’ you might think it stood for stupid. That is until you saw his abilities. Then you’d know that ‘S’ stood for super. Then you’d know that he wasn’t stupid; he was Superman. My ‘S’ has fooled a lot of people—a lot, even me. It took me many years to find my super powers. I didn't know that I had the ability to conjure people, places, things--entire worlds. Back then, I didn't know I had the power to entertain you with my mind. But now that I recognize my talent, using it brings me great joy. I love to entertain you. And I like having you peek over my shoulder when I work. That's what I'd like you to do again--as I start yet another project.
