My Escape

I can travel through time. I can travel through space. I can travel through space AND time.

I don’t need to do anything special.

It doesn’t take a lot of effort. I settle back and take a breath. My breathing slows, I focus my attention and within moments, I’m doing it. Before I know it, more time has passed than seems possible. But in that impossible amount of time, I have been born, I have lived, I have loved, I have died.

I don’t need to do anything special.

All I have to do is open up. I cast off my worries, my torments and my prejudices. I open my eyes, I open my heart. I become something else. I reach the end breathless and heartbroken. I have to learn to live again. I have to take back my worries, torments and prejudices. I have to learn to be me again.

I don’t need to do anything special.

I pick up a book.
