The Mirage Reporter

Wherever you are
Someday, sometime
In some kind of weather



Once I became interested in mirages, I started seeing them everywhere. Some days, I see so many mirages in Los Angeles I wonder how anyone can concentrate on driving. (Then I come back to my senses and realize that noone else sees all these mirages because no one else is looking for them. I still don't understand how you can miss them.)

Anyway, I have been telling my friends about mirages and now they look for them, too. Next time you're outside, look around. Maybe you will see a mirage.
