Show Description
Why you write the way you do. Why are you the way you are? The Horatio Algier Ideal. Surealism. Flying over Peru the door to the plane Shep was flying in opens and the clipboard with all the charts goes out into the jungle below. Shep tells about the 4 story ice cream cone that was built one day when he was 9. It opened that summer selling ice cream. The following year it mysteriously closed after being open for only 3 weeks and was boarded up for years. Then one day it was demolished with a few sticks of dynamite having a profound effect of Shep as he stood there watching it fall.
