Exercise in Training the Imagination

Imagine a quiet corner of Soul Food on a summer's day
Permit 3 or 4 minutes to build up the picture of it in a garden, in the country, in the mountains, by the sea.
Mentally sketch in every detail, filling in the colours and seeing everything that makes the environment complete.
Now step into the place that has been built; imagine the warmth and the light of the sun, the sound it is filled with and the scent of the air.
Enjoy these for a minute, always maintaining the position of the observer.
Then deliberately withdraw and dismiss the picture - not just when tired of it, say after three minutes and return quietly to your world.
