“WHEN Edwin C. Barnes climbed down from the freight train in Orange, N. J…

he may have resembled a tramp, but his thoughts were those of a king!”  -  Hill


Verse 1

“You know a dream is like a river, ever changing as it flows

And a dreamer’s just a vessel that must follow where it goes

Trying to learn from what’s behind him and never knowing what’s in store

Makes each day a constant battle to try stay between the shore.”   *


“Barnes succeeded because he chose a definite goal, placed all his energy,

all his will power, all his effort, everything back of that goal.”


Verse 2

“Too many times we stand aside and let the waters slip away

‘til what we put off ‘til tomorrow has now become today.

So, don’t You sit upon the shoreline and say Your satisfied

Choose to chance the rapids and dare to dance the tide.”   *


“[Barnes] left himself no possible way of retreat. He had to win or perish!”


Our attitude MUST be the same as Barnes’



“There’s bound to be rough waters and I know I’ll take some falls

But with the Good Lord as my captain I can make it through them all.”  *



“I will sail my vessel ‘til the river runs dry

Like a bird upon the wind these waters are my sky

I’ll never reach my destination if I never try

So, I will sail my vessel ‘til the river runs dry.”  *


Thank You Linda & Michael Dlouhy, Bob Shoaf, and all in this Mastermind

for Your persistence in supporting me as I “sail my vessel”.  My prayer is

that I be the same to You.



Eternally Grateful,

I AM the GATEKEEPER of my subconscious mind.  I MUST be on duty 24/7.
