Excerpt:

“Jeff?”

“Um, yeah?” I replied, still too fascinated to take much of an interest in what Lobo wanted by that time. I was certain he had to be creating what I was seeing somehow, but I couldn’t stop staring.

Lobo spoke to me again, his voice a very distant rumble against the traffic noise. Although the man sat right next to me, he seemed very far away, and frankly I didn’t care. I was having too much fun. “What?” I asked, not really trying to hear or understand.

“Do you see the convenience store on the other side of the street?” he said, louder this time.

Oh, I knew it was there, but it took a lot of will power to tear my gaze away from the wild parade going by in front of me. “Sure,” I said, sneaking a peek to watch Carla again rush past in her convertible. I seemed to be lost in a strange waking dream.

“OK,” Lobo said, “now read me what that big sign in the window to the left of the door says.”

Nodding my agreement, I stole a quick glance at the store through a space between two cars, but once again that flatbed truck with the barbeque rumbled by, and it smelled so good. “I can’t read the words,” I said, but I hadn’t tried very hard. Not really.

“Jeff, listen to me. What you are seeing are repeated fragments of your thinking I am making visible to you. That’s all they are. No matter whether they are good or bad thoughts, none of them are real. They are just that—thoughts—things you create in your brain.
