In the slipstream of my mind, there exists a wonderful alternate universe.
It's a place where mermaids are real.
A place where dinner conversation is never boring and carbs are not the enemy.
A place we all politely agree to disagree and stinky people are fined.
A place with small problems, BIG love and dental is always included.
In this fantasy world of mine, I'm a potter and a painter and I own a small bookstore with an attached gelateria ; )
This is where I go when I have to do something tedious. My "Mind Palace", as Benedict Cumberbatch calls it in Sherlock.
Speaking of which, if you haven't watched Sherlock on BBC, you must. Right now. I'm serious.
Benedict is so great as Sherlock - the consummate abrasive, condescending genius. And Martin is my favourite Dr. Watson - quietly funny and withholding in that ridiculously charming way only the English can manage ; )
