the real world




where do you go when the world is too much with you?

turn your back on the world, 
leave the world, 
walk strongly and firmly away from the world

and find the real one.

  1. sometimes i retreat within.
    sometimes i walk in deeper, to find the truer place under the shallows.

  2. Away from people: just the waves noisily crushing all around. This place would do too!

  3. I was born in a white very cold world near the top of the earth. :)

  4. I hardly understand the real world, and in return, it doesn't understand me very well either. Therefore, I'm usually in my "own little world," and only come-out when it's necessary.

  5. Oh Erin, I was retire these days, have had full immerion in my tought .. but the coincidence... I have these days exately to do with the tought of "real live" and "real world" isn't this a intresting coincidence? hehehhehe suddenly I think that our spirit are talking each other :-)

    well I read a lot the letters von van gogh and his bruder Theo, he sayd that an artist can't to be in the real world, so even can't have a "normal" love, he sayd that artist's world is not the real life but it is so full of life that to give it up (art world) would be a real act of ingratitude

    love your post Erin

    have a nice day
