A tale I heard

Wrestler 'Jungle Boy' Jack Perry on advice from his late father, actor Luke Perry:

"I first started wrestling when I was 10 years old. I remember talking to my dad one day in the car, and I was saying something about chasing my dreams. My dad came from Ohio and he didn’t have a lot of money. He used to shovel asphalt, so he knew what it was like to follow your dreams. He told me it’s not enough to chase your dream. What you have to do is chase it down and tackle it to the ground. You have to cut its head off and hang it up on your wall, and that’s what it takes to really be successful."

A tale I saw

Thoughts Becoming Things by Jenny Foulds 

A tale I wrote

I see you in liquids.
Your eyes are the warmth of custard,
the fizz of lemonade,
the smoothness of your gravy
rolling over the crispiest potatoes.
Your chest is an Olympic swimming pool,
your bones are a holiday waterpark.
Puddles stare at their reflection in you.
