Day dreams tell us a lot about ourselfs. They are a window into our souls. The essence of life and who we are. What we represent. Notice that children have a lot of day dreams. They are more innocent, connected. We loose that when we get older. Daydreams are special. When we loose them we loose a part of ourself. Our imaginations. Potentials.

As children in the 1820s the novelists Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë, along with their brother, Branwell, created two make-believe realms called Gondal and Angria in their parsonage on the English Yorkshire moors. Angria, a confederacy of states, teemed with both fashionable aristocrats and lower-class citizens who frequented inns and taverns and similar locales. In various plots Angria would become enmeshed in war, revolution and other dramatic events. In Gondal, Emily and Anne’s secret state, warfare and politics alternated with romantic intrigues. Gondal’s women were more assertive and resourceful than those of Angria, in which passive beauties pined for their lovers. These two fantasy lands, about which the children wrote in several hundred matchbox-size books, planted the mental seeds for the novels the sisters would write as adults.
