Excuse Me – Where’s the Exit?
Escapism seems to be a controversial topic, and one with great relevance, considering (varying) perceptions regarding the ‘real world’. Is escapism avoidance, or is it freedom and creativity? This is where I ponder the pros and cons of escapism. From what I have read, there are various stages, but this really is a complex aspect of learning about the art of escapism. There are also many types of escapism, some with positive results, and others with negative consequences. Where do you draw the line?
A means of diversion from negative aspects in life
A window period of optimism and light
Meditative and focused
Denial of one’s current situation
Avoidance and procrastination
