"I hear melodies in my head when I’m alone, and not alone at all. The imaginary friends from my childhood reclaim themselves in my mind, and my creativity is restored. A burst of insight both foreign and familiar make an appearance and I begin to laugh. Smiling is a factor of life. And with that newfound confidence married within the upright curve on my face, I mortifyingly scared, hop out into the world not knowing what it will bring––but fully confident in what might happen. I feel magical in this place, and in books I am inspired. I dream of far off worlds with dragons and purple leopards, and that is where I live."
