"Out of this wood I do not desire to go.
Thou shalt remain here,
whether thou wilt or no.
I am a spirit of no common rate.
The summer still doth tend upon my state;
And I do love thee.
Therefore, go with me.
I'll give thee fairies
to attend on thee,
And they shall fetch thee jewels from the deep,
while thou on pressèd flowers dost sleep:
And I will purge thy mortal grossness so,
That thou shalt like an airy spirit go.
Moth! And Mustardseed!"

I'm upstate for the holiday.
I have already seen family and friends
and got to laugh and play.
My friends threw me a party,
at which I met a boy from New York.
He later told me that he works at my favorite coffee place.
Which goes to show that the world indeed is too small!
So for the night, this was my escape from reality.
I have a few secret places wherever I go.
Secret ponds, secret rocks and fountains, secret buildings.
And whenever I'm low, I'll just go and hide out in one.
Where are some of your secret places?
