    Theda, I got to thinking about the bad logic in my attempt to connect things to the Beatles album charts. I think that's just not working and it's helped me to go a different route. Looking harder I found a picture of this sign that shows there's more to it than I originally thought "Dare to dream the impossible dream," has some interesting possibilites.

    Cask 3 Verse 11 Rodanthe

    I found a picture of this sign along Highway 12 near the Chicamacomico Life Saving Station, I'd like to know how long it's been there or if it had been there since 1981 and did it then have the words "Dare to dream the impossible dream" written below "MIRLO BEACH"?



    The part that interests me most is the link it might have to the line of verse,

    "Where white is in color"

    Since "With two maps" follows, it's easy to consider the connection it might be making to John White, the colonist/cartographer and grandfather to Virgina Dare -interesting that the sign contains the word "Dare". Had the line capitalized the word as "White", then it would be a sure fit for John White, but as it's lower case, I would prefer to prioritize finding something which is actually the white in color. This sign above uses white letters to spell the word "MIRLO" which is the word for a blackbird, which makes it more interesting since we have some letters, white in color, spelling a word for a blackbird, named for it's color.

    I haven't given much thought to the connection to Don Quixote. Something to think about.

    I haven't given much thought to the connection to Don Quixote. Something to think about.

    "Dream the impossible dream", The Quest.

    Briefly looking at the lyrics from the Man of La Mancha, there's a line from Aldonza saying "These ridiculous...things you do!" and then towards the end of song, Quixote says, "That one man, scorned and covered with scars, Still strove, with his last ounce of courage, To reach the unreachable stars!". The mention of "ounce of courage" and "ridiculous" actions of Don Quixote may fit the "Ride the man of oz" line, translating it to mean "Ridicule the man of courage" since oz could be ounce.

    The Wright Brothers memorial words, "In commemoration of the conquest of the air by the brothers Wilbur and Orville Wright conceived by genius achieved by dauntless resolution and unconquerable faith," may be a good parallel to Don Quixote's faith-filled and determined quest.

    Ooh, another idea just jumped to mind. There's a common question about dreaming in color. Some people claim they only dream in black and white. Perhaps to those people, it is an "impossible dream" to dream in color.

    Update: I've received sufficient confirmation to the effect that my theory on Chicamacomico will not lead to a successful recovery. There's been too many changes to the immediate environment to make any recovery possible. Consider my theory proven false.
