in this place

Sometimes I feel like I need a place to hide away from life for a bit. In this place time would stop and I could take risks without being at risk. I could revel in success and let failure slip into the undisturbed dark. I could celebrate myself and be proud of who I am without being in competition and without fear of being compared. Without fear of being compared. I could smile and just let it be a smile. And when I felt like it I would leave this place and enter time again and rest in the knowledge that who I am in this place is the essence of who I am in any place.
