  • Switching off from life, the universe and everything is a trick I learned when I was very young.

    It still comes in useful on those days when I hit a wall and need to just rest.

    I'm a fantasy purist. Nothing real works. I never read regular fiction.

    Total mental separation from the world.

    Use this trick with caution though.

    Here Be Dragons!
