Taking refuge in your dreams.


From time to time, we all need to take a break from the “real” world. We all contrive various ways to leave our troubles behind and take refuge in a place of our own.

This can be done in a variety of ways. Perhaps a holiday, for a much needed change of scene, or a spot of retail therapy; but I tend to take refuge inside my own thoughts, pushing away, for a short while at least, that which blights my life.

Okay, you have to return and face up to life’s problems eventually, you can’t escape them forever. But a hiatus from the oncoming storm, whatever it may consist of, is essential.

I count myself lucky for being able to write. I can temporarily transfer my woes to my characters, or even make their problems worse than my own. I can also resolve their woes far easier and leave them with a happy conclusion to their stories. I’ve even found that in doing so I sometimes – just sometimes – stumble across a solution to whatever’s bugging me.

Dreams are precious. They define who we are and help us focus on and find the resolve to carry on, regardless of what life may throw at us.

  1. We’ve just been talking about dreams, what we’d really like to do. And it’s turning out to be difficult to pin down. We’ve got so used to making do, with not having holidays or physical breaks of any kind, that we automatically fashion a dream retreat. In a dream retreat you don’t have to toss up between a cottage in the wilderness or a flat in the city, changing continent or just visiting a far-flung corner of the world. You can do it all, if you have enough imagination.


  2. I live in my dreams…that’s half the problem, I rarely surface to face reality! šŸ™‚
