"You can visit all kinds of wonderful places in your imagination. Most people lose the ability to fantasize without boundaries as they grow up. Their minds are used to all the limitations of the real world. It makes them forget dreams have no limitations. Especially during difficult times, like the corona lockdown in the spring of 2020, it is very important to be able to use your imagination.
As a child I read a book that still fascinates me immensely. A story about a wonderful world with the most beautiful forests you have ever dreamed of.
Where are forests hot as fire,
Wide as England, tall as a spire
These lines of verse by R.L. Stevenson inspired Tonke Dragt to write an adventure on Venus: “Towering and Miles Wide”. The book was published in 1969, when the first human set foot on the moon. All other planets still a mystery. In her story, Venus consisted of forests and beautiful nature. " - Elise Eekhout
