"Peanuts, anyone?"

I had a dream I went to a beautiful house on a hill at dusk. As people gathered in the drive and began walking up the steep walkway leading to the front door, I whispered around me, "Where are we? Whose house is this?"
No one answered, they just kept talking amongst themselves...I became quite anxious and tried pushing my way past the people more lackadaisical. I kept thinking, "What am I doing here? Was I invited to this party?"
As I entered the home, a large modern-style cabin with a fine series of windows lit from the inside, I saw the homeowner passing out drinks and making merry with guests.
As I looked at the man's face and features I suddenly...somehow came to the realization that I was in the presence of Charles M. Schultz. I smiled and shook his hand, and then left. I still have no idea what this dream is all about. I left the party with a guy that must have felt the same way I did. Not quite sure why I was meeting Schultz, and not quite sure why not.

Here's a quote from the man himself!

"My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and yet I'm happy. I can't figure it out. What am I doing right?"
-Schultz (1922-2000)

I came here expecting peanuts, and I got Peanuts. Now I'm all hungry. ⌐_⌐

apparently, Schultz was a tormented soul. not unlike his alter-ego, Charlie Brown. a book came out within the last 2 years and Schultz's family was not happy about it.

that'll be 5 cents, please.

I think there's some deep psychological symbolism in Charlie Brown's striped shirt.

Schultz reminds me of myself, drifting aimlessly through the void and enjoying every minute of it!

Now completely off topic:

when are you guys going to make me an official member of Ditalini Press?

And I noticed, blogger doesn't list your Email addresses...this is the only way I could think to contact you :(

Sorry CX...totally confused as to why the invite didn't work. I just sent you a real email so we can figure out why the membership didn't work. :)

Your dream obviously means that you're feeling lost, and that trying to let celebrity in to your home isn't going to make things better.

That or you really wanted peanuts and got the wrong variety.
