Imagine your favorite morning! he yelled to us. He was always barking, always bursting with energy.

Now your favorite lunch! Your favorite afternoon! Your favorite game of soccer, your favorite evening, the girl you love most!
He said this while walking along our line of sitting boys, talking to our heads.

Now create in your mind the best of days, and memorize these details, place this day center in your mind, and when you are the most frightened, bring forth this day and place yourself within it. Run through this day and I assure you that before you are finished with your dream-breakfast, you will be asleep.

What is the What,
Dave Eggers / Valentino Achak Deng
