Sponge Cake: A Mostly Made Up Story About A Completely Insane Town

By Chris Arneson

Young adult | Paperback, eBook


How have certain, significant moments in your life heightened or quelled your fears? Why do we fear a certain collection of things, while another individual holds different fears? Are these fears based on our experiences and surroundings or are they innate, born into us, things that are beyond our control? Some things occur that are beyond our control, such as meeting certain people that will change our lives forever. You never know when that moment is coming or who that person will be, however, so it is critical to always carry an open heart. By walking around with an open heart, you are indicating to the world that you are ready to make the next step to reach your full potential. Anyway, the morning after my whole family slept in my father’s Dodge pickup truck, we were out eating breakfast by the campfire. My dad was shrewd enough to bring some kindling wood and a box of matches so we were able to have at least half of a normal camping experience. We were all eating bacon and eggs around the campfire, sitting in our comfy chairs, one happy family. It was a tremendous breakfast, one of the best ones I had in my whole life. Afterwards, my father pulled me to the side to have a private, father-to-son type of chat. We walked about five minutes from the campsite to a breathtaking clearing in the trees, where the Atlantic Ocean was somehow, impossibly visible far off in the distance. I could hear seagulls calling out to the heavens.
