Things Aren’t Always As Big As They Seem

Last night I dreamt I was in a strange library.  On a huge shelf, way above everything was this enormous book.  It must've been two stories high and as wide across as the front of a house.  The title, which I could barely read, said something about the history of giants, which changed when I looked at it again to the history of miniature, toy soldiers.

Someone decided to get a long stick and poke at the massive book until it fell down, so we could look at it - though it was going to take a few of us just to open the cover.

He started poking and the book began to fall, but as it fell and turned we realized it was only a page, and as it settled to the ground it rolled itself neatly up into tube-rolled poster.  The entire thing had been an optical illusion, drawn to look like a massive book with millions of pages - when, in fact, it had only been a large sheet of paper; like the art of Julian Beever.

Anyone else get the feeling that my dream is trying to tell me not to make mountains out of molehills - that maybe what seems huge and overwhelming is actually quite small and manageable if only I change my perspective?

    Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or
    vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same
    subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you are interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!

    Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's tough to get
    that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and appearance.

    I must say you've done a very good job with this. Also, the blog loads super fast for me on Internet explorer.
    Superb Blog!

    With everything that seems to be developing throughout this particular subject material, your points of view happen to be quite stimulating. Nevertheless, I appologize, but I can not subscribe to your entire theory, all be it exhilarating none the less. It looks to everyone that your commentary are generally not completely rationalized and in actuality you are generally yourself not totally convinced of the argument. In any case I did appreciate examining it.

    Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting fed up of WordPress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of completely unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being stolen? I'd definitely appreciate it.

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of
    the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year
    and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
