[My nightstand back in Kansas.]
As hard as I've tried, it's so much harder to create a world of your entire own, than one would expect. And to be completely honest, I prefer, much more, to simply join in someone else's, or create one with others.
They never tell you how to do this, or that many, many people have never managed to before.
But where I'm at in life, literally and figuratively, it's exactly what I'm being forced to do. I try not to harp on the "why's" -- instead I am learning to say "I trust Him."
"Don’t wait for it,” I said. “Create a world, your world. Alone. Stand alone. Create. And then the love will come to you, then it comes to you. It was only when I wrote my first book that the world I wanted to live opened up to me.”- Anais Nin (March 1933)
