Julia Hughes - writing thrilling adventures - time after time after time.
"Stone walls do not a prison make,
Nor iron bars a cage;
Minds innocent and quiet take
that for a hermitage.
If I have freedom in my love,
And in my soul am free,
Angels alone that soar above,
Enjoy such liberty." Richard Lovelace 1618 – 1657
Those words written centuries ago continue to resonate – minds and imagination cannot be imprisoned by physical restraints. Conversely, the prisons we create for ourselves, inside our own minds can become fortresses and are the hardest of all to escape from – the guard is always present and vigilant. Sometimes we need someone from another world to help us escape from our own self imposed prisons, we call comfort zones. And that little voice you hear saying "it's called the "comfort zone" for a reason" might just be your own personal jailer denying you the freedom to try something new. Don't listen: give yourself permission to be free.
