Time doesn't exist here.
Right now.
Don't look at a cellular device.
Those don't exist either.
Close your eyes.
Where are you right now?
Tell me.
Are there clouds and shining stars to whisper your hellos for you and never utter a goodbye?
Are there fireflies playing and Summer air breathing in your lungs?
Are you the ocean's tide coming up to greet the shore?
Where are you right now?
You can be anything.
Close your eyes.
You can be something else the second time you closed your eyes.
You could be somewhere else. Y
ou could be someplace in the galaxy right now and the moon might be looking for you.
Do you hear that?
Thats the sound of your breath.
You finally took one.
You can go a long time without breathing here.
Did you know that?
You do now.
Here you can do anything you want.
You can dream about anythings and nothings.
And no one.
No one.
 Has the right to tell you can't.
Those type of beings aren't welcome in this place.
The doors are closed on tears unless they are tears of happiness.
Where are you right now?
Are you asleep or awake?
 Or are you both?
Some people never know.
Some people will never know.
A lot of people have names for this place.
Some people call it the Imagination.
Some people call it Neverland.
Some people call it Fantasy.
Some call it Dreamland.
 Some people call it Reality.
But very few do that; only the really weird people.
But if you are one of those people, don't get offended.
Often weird people are brilliant people.
A lot of people have a name for this place.
I don't have a name for it.
I don't.
But if I did, I may call it something simple.
Like Bob.
But I kind of like the thought of not having a name for it.
After all why would it need a name?
 Here, I don't need a name.
You don't either.
But you could have one if you wanted to.
It's up to you I suppose.
Close your eyes.
Do you see now?

Don't open your eyes just yet.
You'll open them soon enough.
You'll go back to the real world soon enough.
You'll face it all again.
But for now,
become a master at pretend.
There is no real world.
There are no problems up ahead.
None of that exists here.
Tomorow doesn't exist and Yesterday doesn't exist.
Today was never here.
 But it was, and it is, and it will be.

“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be”
--Roald Dahl


  1. I had a philosophy professor once who said that time is nothing but a man-made contruct. That time, in essence, does not even exist. This is what this post reminds me of...this is powerfully deep.

  2. This is so beautiful....It made my heart all happy and sad and kinda right in between. <3 <3

    {p.s. I adore Roald Dahl...and that quote. ^_^}

  3. Rachel said it perfectly. <3
    and i dunno who Roald is, but that quote is pretty awesome!!

  4. That was very moving. Well done, Sophie! It's good to meet you. :)

  5. love. !!! and i love your roald dalh quote ;)

  6. This is absolutely purrfect. I LOVE this post.
    I just love the way you write too, you definitly have a talent for it. =) Much better than me...heh heh. I'd love to wrap up my picture posts with thoughts like these. <3
    Keep it up!
    It reminds me of that verse in the Bible, 2 Peter 3:8 "Now, dear friends, do not let this one thing escape your notice, that a single day is like a thousand years with the Lord and a thousand years are like a single day."
    It's so comforting to know that God isn't bound by time like we are. =)
