It's better to have a crazy dream than no dream at all

"Mad" Mike Hughes finally rode his home built steam rocket about 1,875 feet above Amboy, California. And lived to tell about it. That's quite a feat for a self-taught rocketeer. Never mind he's a flat-earther. He had a dream, he worked on it, fought through setbacks and eventually pulled it off.

There was a time I had no dreams beyond the vague hope of escaping a life I'd stopped enjoying. My therapist asked what I would do if I were free. I didn't have a clue. But it eventually came to me. I worked on it, fought through setbacks, and now here I am, living an uncomplicated, mostly carefree, life wandering around the West. A lot of folks would say that's crazy. Because it's not their dream.

  1. "because it is not their dream" was a very important understanding I finally understood many years ago. It was a great FREEDOM that came over me when I did understand.
