I can relate to the quote of this interview: ‘At some times in my life, books have been the only safe place in the world.’ Stories, art, music and imagination are essential. How else can you bear existing as a conscious being here on this grim earth? You have to be able to detached from the reality of daily desolation and create a mental space for your greater vision. May it be through reading a book and getting lost in the stories written by somebody else, or even creating your own adventures by running around in the woods and exploring the creek. ∎
