The faculty to forget all about the universe around you… Nothing else exists but your inner world, which expands into surroundings that are real only to you…
I love the faculty that children have to do this and I think these two photos summarize this state of grace perfectly. I could have called my daughters many times, I could have shouted at them, I could have waved at them and still they would have been totally oblivious of my efforts to get their attention.
Your eyes are completely focused on that magical world, you are murmuring to yourself, telling a story which is meant for your ears only, your arms and legs, your hands and feet have one purpose only: bringing the fabulous story you have created to life!
Do you remember that feeling? I am pleased to say that I do. In fact, I do still disappear into another dimension at times… And it is such a wonderful sensation!
