You can make things come true

when you believe them hard enough,

declare them to the universe

visualize the outcome

make it so

make it so

make it so.

Unless everyone in view

is believing, declaring, and visualizing, too

and there’s only room for one of you.

Yeah, that’s hard stuff

it could be worse

Don’t be glum.

Let it go

let it go

let it go.

These men are an inspiration!  I love the whacky sense of humour and commitment it takes to wear facial art like this.

At the fair a couple weeks ago, I noticed a man with an impressive growth of beard, suffering somewhat, as the nest on his face appeared to be full of melted ice cream.  He looked a trifle sheepish.  Such dramatic hair plainly offers hazards to everyday life!

Though the character looks like he might be an evil henchman, I’m quite intrigued by this clever use of colour:

Worried about bats in your hair?  How about a stork in your beard? 🙂  Check out those mischievous blue eyes!
