My favorite place to sleep.

I feel safe. Inside my cocoon. Because it’s a haven. An escape. A place to block out the rest of the world. For a few hours. Or a day or two. Of course, I could remain secluded. For weeks and months. But I emerge after short stays. Knowing I have to deal with real life. With the world. As it is. Like it or not. I have learned to make the best of it. By retreating to my cocoon. To catch my breath. To rest. To rejuvenate. Essentially, to collect my wits. I’m in my cocoon. At the moment.  It’s my favorite place to sleep. Undisturbed. --Jim

Everyone should have a cocoon. Two lives, in a sense. That of a caterpillar-like being. In the warmth and safety of  a shelter. A time to rest. And then. Lo and behold. Emerging into a grand and glorious world. As a butterfly.  What can be better than that? On an Easter Sunday, too --Jim

I create my own world. By interpreting what I see and feel. Yes, by finding my own meaning. Maybe that’s the way it was meant to be. The original creator blessed us. By allowing us to create. Nothing less than our own exclusive selves. By giving free rein to our imaginations. Being whatever I want to be. So here I am. A romantic idealist. A spiritual free-thinker. A political liberal. A lover. A dreamer. Yes, I am who I am. Because that’s what I choose to be. Free as free can be. --Jim
