I won’t be ever good as you or anyone else

Well… That’s exactly right… I’m DreamMaster… I am the master at dreaming not art! That’s a big difference. Lol.


Once when i was at LA airport, i saw this Fabio look-a-like, shirt unbuttoned, hair flying in the wind and driving a luggage cart…just wondering what he must have been dreaming of…
