Today I needed a break. A walk in the garden would have been nice.

I needed some solitary tranquility.

I needed to hold court in the backyard and look over the town.

I needed a stroll without anybody pulling on me.

In reality, I did not get the things I needed today. But I got them once upon a time, and I used my mind to call up this scene again. As long as we are in control of our own minds we can be free no matter where our physical body is.
