"Wise words do oft out of the mouths of Fools themselves bespeak."
It has come to our attention that you recently volunteered information re: a certain Theodore Unseth
to the infamous Dreamers Anonymous 'think tank', prompting the legally-dubious Intervention by staff members of same upon
Mr. Unseth, resulting in his being detained for several weeks.
We're hard-pressed for an understanding of your motivation
for such action (on the street, you'd be considered a 'snitch'), but, out of deference to Mr. Unseth's wishes, we'll forego
an accounting of same and simply say that Forgiveness is an integral part of all our programs and we grant you this now.
reason we write to you is to inform you that we have, ourselves, successfully Intervened on Mr. Unseth's behalf and he is
currently being de-programmed at our Safe Haven (location undisclosed). We're encouraged that the Dreamers Anonymous 'goons'
haven't completely sapped Mr. Unseth's creative juices--there's good reason for Hope.
We'd like to help you better
understand the critically important role Dreamers (most especially Responsible ones) play on this Planet. And so, to that
end, we offer these Observations provided by Mr. Unseth himself:
1. "Remember that time at Rose Park when my Nephew
Robb and I were sitting on the stair-wall and you'd gone to the store to get something to eat (it turned out to be an ice
cream sandwich, I believe)? When you returned Robb asked you what motivated you to purchase that particular item and you replied,
'I had a Veeezhun!' Not exactly a Major Vision, true; but a Vision all the same. And where did that come from?: Dreaming."
(Proof available on request.)
2. "Remember the time we were playing Doubles together and you accidentally hit an Amazing
Shot? I said, 'Whoa, Nellie! Where'd that come from?!' and you replied, 'It must have been God.' I submit that you were Dreaming
when you hit that shot (Dreams can last but a micro-second)."
(Further proof available on request.)
the time we went 'for a drink' and I talked and talked and talked? Every so often, I'd look over at you and I'd see Very Heavy
Eyelids. Then I'd continue talking at length again. In retrospect, I believe that what you were doing while I was talking
ad infinitum was Dreaming. And it got you through another horrific Listening Session = a valuable tool, Dreaming."
are but a few examples of Dream Worth. There are literally 1.6 trillion of them in our files. You're welcome to access these
files at any time. Just go to our Website: http://tedeboy.net and submit this Password: "Dreams.exe".
Our job here
at IRD is to promote Responsible Dreaming. Mr. Unseth has proven to be one of the most responsible Dreamers we've ever interacted
with. Yes, he has his shortcomings in certain areas (Social Amenities, Balancing Checkbooks, Planning For The Future), but
we feel the positive effects of his Responsible Dreaming far outweigh the aforementioned.
It is our sincere hope that
you'll look at Mr. Unseth's Dreaming in a more favorable light in the future. We believe that he is on the verge of a Major
Contribution to the World At Large and your enhanced support would be welcome indeed. You are, of course, under no obligation
whatsoever. Your Free Will is equally as important to us as is Mr. Unseth's Vision. Just remember this:
migliore costruzione in tutto."
(Put the best construction on everything)
Thank you for your kind attention,
p.s. As you'll note in the Greeting of this letter, you, yourself are something of a Dream
p.p.s. Surely you believe in Miracles--after all, you are one (the Miracle of Life).
