Make a Sound Escape

Close your eyes and go somewhere else. Let go of the mundanity of life, and focus on the serene. Allow your mind to slip into another world, another place, that only you can go to.

Listen to the world you are now in, the words spoken to you and around you. Process what you can discern, ponder over your observations, and extrapolate what the world is like with merely your imagination.

Remain rooted in reality, but let immersion wash over you. Go someplace else.

Come back different.
