  • When you can pull away from life for a moment.

    Withdraw from the rush, and from the business.

    When you can hide away in a familiar place

    A place with an atmosphere that forces stress and business away.

    It forces you to be calm

    To sit down and sit back.

    You can escape from the world.

    To me, I see these moments in time as moments outside of time.

    I escape from my problems, my issues, my worries, and my work.

    I find that I even escape from myself.

    I would not imagine saying that while in those moments I am truly myself.

    Actually, scratch that.

    It is in those moments that I find I am truly myself.

    I discover who I really was, and what I really wanted to do

    Before life got in the way and changed me into this.

    So the truth is I keep going back because really,

    I need to remember who I am.

    I need to rediscover myself.

    More importantly I go there to rediscover,

    And enter into the presence of the one who made me.

    I call this.
