Sometimes life seems tough and unfair, and sometimes we realize that it needed to happen for us to wake up and change something about ourselves and our life, and later on we thank that hardship for shaking us up a bit and getting us to lead a better life for ourselves.
Roomie's life is also starting to shake things up, though it's not quite visible yet :) (Roomie's a bit more resistant to it, maybe, and finds ways to zigzag around the shaking)
Haha, I love metaphors, can you tell? Sometimes I talk about something and it transforms into a metaphor and then I realize how deep the metaphor can go and I dive in with thrilling joy.
Might sound cliché but, I do love how my imagination goes, at times!
And I've shared that love with Lillian's character, who feeds on dreams and stories herself. Similarly to her, I've moved around quite a bit in my childhood, even moving from France to the USA for several years in my pre-teens, and having a very hard time leaving friends from the USA.
I believe it fed my connection to the story-telling world, through dreams, books, writing and drawing, I was able to keep to myself entire worlds without ever having to leave them behind, not unless it was my own decision. It must have reassured and helped me in so many ways. And it still does! My imagination is a big part of me, my life, my home.
... and now my revenue I guess :D
