Where wild minds come to rest
A little off topic in a way. I was looking thru the latest "W" magazine, I do this for research on trends and such for work. And I was overwhelmed at the utter lack of reality. As someone with Maladaptive Daydreaming Disorder I have my own issues with reality but it seems this delusion IS their reality. Looking at the super thin models striking strange poses in bizarre outfits that you most likely couldn't walk in, and the photos of the designers hanging out with celebrities at parties. I wonder, is this the whole of their world? Is this what they see as reality? I ponder, if there was a natural disaster, and there was no one to fix their hair, bring them their bottled water and snacks. Could they even begin to survive? I think my dream world is probably more real then their reality.
In my dreams I have gathered wild plants for food, hunted, roasted meat over an open fire. Made clothes from animal skins and learn to build a fire. To dream of worlds were survival is hard and to visualize yourself concurring it, I think makes you stronger inside. So when my reality crashes in on me, I am in a much easier environment, with running water and refrigerators. I think I would fare far better in a crisis then those who live in a high fashion world and couldn't find the milk isle in a Walmart.
No offense to anyone who lives in that world. ;)
