My entire life I have been fascinated by supernatural phenomenon. As a small boy I would often daydream and fantasize about having super powers. During these daily adventures I would fly, exhibit super human strength and I always, and I mean always, beat up the bad guys. As you can well imagine, I loved reading comic books and of all the many and varied superheros to choose from Superman was. of course, my absolute favorite!

Maybe it’s because on the outside I felt like the mild mannered, nerd-ish and often ridiculed Clark Kent. But inside, deep inside, hidden under all my disguises, I knew I wasn't a Clark Kent, I was really a Superman. Doing right things right, rescuing the damsel in distress, defeating evil and fighting for truth, justice and the American way! Yeah, that was me, that’s what was really hidden behind those nerdy glasses.

Alas, I am no longer a child… but Superman still lives in my heart.

I am 48 years old and I am convinced today more than ever that I was indeed created to live a supernatural life. You see, the most super of all men to ever walk this Earth, He lives in my heart. And nothing is impossible for him, nothing! He always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres - He never fails!

His love has given me the courage to shed my Clark Kent disguises… little by little, day after day I’m learning to live in my skin. It feels weird but it feels... good, it feels... free. It feels... real. Now if I can just find a phone booth… ;)

    Super freak.

    Isn't word association fun? What do other people think of when they think "supernatural"?? It'd be an interesting discussion.

    I'm just saying, is all...
