Regardless of the status of our lives, we all live inside a trap. Some nicer than others; some scarier than others. Circumstances, obligations, and the like constraint and restraint who we are and who we want to be.
For the most part there is no way out. The trap goes on restricting us ever so tight.
There is one way to avoid being suffocated in that trap and to keep sanity, and the essence of who we are.
Within that trap there is a corner. A small room in that box where we keep what makes us tick.
It is important to find that place where we can be happy and still remain in the trap. A room for rent for a few moments each day, each week. A place that is only ours. That is how we survive in the trap.
