This is where I’ve made some of my most valuable friendships. This is where I come when I want to escape my life, and disappear into a fantastical and meditative state of mind, where no outside influence can disturb me in my imaginings. This is the secret place that people like me are unable to access in the real world; when you live in a city, or in a busy area, you need to have a place just for you, where you can be alone. If you cannot get that in a forest near your house, then you must rely on other sources.
