We all have a world inside our head. It’s that secret place that we escape to when reality becomes too much to bear. Imagine if that little world took on a physical form. Imagine you could actually live inside your mind.
I think my world would be full of pretty things, but also very dark things. I imagine it would look an awful lot like an American McGee Alice game.
But it wouldn’t be an unpleasant or dangerous place. I’d be happy there. There would be hardly any other people; only the ones I really like. I would spend long stretches of time all alone, listening to gorgeous melancholy music, drinking lavender tea and eating violet creams. I would sit around in fabulous lolita dresses and write in elegant notebooks while surrounded by hundreds of birds.
The idea of dream worlds becoming reality is a major theme in How to Disappear Completely. So I would be very interested to hear about other people’s worlds.
If you could live in your very own little dream world, what would it be like? Would it be your paradise? Would you rule over it like a king or queen? Or do you think your own personal demons would turn your fantasy into a nightmare?
Please, share your thoughts.
