|My newest creations! :3|
I am a HUGE fan of Sherlock,and I regularly re-watch episodes,squee over fanart and read fan-fictions.
Well,last night,after reading some of the previously mentioned fan-fiction,I found myself smiling about something that Sherlock says in an episode. He tells John-((among other))-to be quiet,because he had to enter his mind palace. At first this idea kinda sounds silly. No one has a mind palace,right?
But we all kinda do.Most everyone that I’ve talked-((Online and IRL))-to has had times where they just need to retreat into their mind,at times. To focus. To think. To be happy. To be calmed.
When I think about it,my mind palace is more of a maze than a palace. Nothing fancy. Just a maze of different walls and rooms,filled with pictures of people and times and things that make me happy. and ones that make me sad. With bigger rooms the closer you get to the center. A sparkling deep pool. A peaceful and colorful garden. A whole library. Just books everywhere. some dirty and old,and some almost squeaky clean-as if never touched by anybody. Fireplaces and piles of blankets and pillows. Floors of all kinds line the corridors of the maze. Grassy floors,slimy floors,warm floors,cold floors and soft bouncy floors. Tons of walls with different textures and coloring. Chandeliers and torches and random lamps lighting the whole thing.
And surrounding my mind maze is an bottomless moat full of snakes and water-bugs and things that no one would want to touch. Surrounding that would be a huge gate,painted every color in existence and taller than a skyscraper!
All with a single wooden drawbridge and a single opening for those that I trust to walk the maze. For those that I love enough. One way in and one way out.
Now,while I was thinking about this,I got pretty sad. Realizing that not everyone that I have talked to about this could relate to this. I think that there are some people who have lost the keys to their Mind Palaces. Some that can barely even see their mind palace. Left locked out,wandering the empty space surrounding it.
But just because the key is lost,I hope,means that it can always be found. You just hafta look for it~
