My Hideaway

That day I decided to flee, to hide somewhere far from the world. Finding a good hiding place didn’t seem easy, but then I saw the pile of books and I knew that there, I would be ok.


And I set out to go into their pages and get lost among them.

Once in the story of that book, I was not aware that time passed and that my family and friends were missing me and they had started looking for me.

Until one day I felt his pain, I had to go back…


It was a very happy reunion, I apologized for the sadness I had caused them and I promised them not to hide like this again –At least not so long 😉

Moral:  hide from the world forever, not a good idea.

I’m sorry for hiding a bit from this week’s challenge, my friend Anabel always says that when we don’t know how to express something, we should write a story… The truth is that I don’t have a hiding place as such. Maybe my house is that place, although it is shared with my family. But every time I pick up a book, it’s like the rest of the world disappears…. That’s my hideaway!

  1. Ana, I hate to go overboard in my comments but I must say this one REALLY melted my heart! Your little clay (?) people were fabulous and the idea behind your response is absolutely perfect. Bravo!

  2. Great post Ana! Not all of us have a hideaway as such. I feel the same way. Photography takes me away in much the same way as books do for you. But, there is a book I’ve been wanting to get into!

    1. The books for me are places to run away for a while. On the contrary, photography is different, I think it helps me to go out, with it I show myself to the world, I guess that’s why, right now, I’m not taking many photos.
      Thanks a lot for your comment, Anne 🙂

  3. Beautifully and artistically expressed through these clay people and words. Lately, I pick up my brushes as a “hideaway”…
    I can relate to your thoughts, Ana.

    1. I can only one at a time… right now I have just finished the last book by a Spanish writer I like very much, Rosa Montero, entitled La Buena Suerte. It is a book that makes you feel good, in addition to having a mystery that is revealing little by little.
      And today I will return to a series of fantasy in which I am immersed, The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson.
      I love fantasy books, which is why I have to dose them.


  4. What a wonderful interpretation of this challenge! As an introvert, I totally understand where you’re coming from. Love your clay people and hope you will keep them around – even when we can see each other more easily.

  5. Books make the best hideaways because we can go so many different places while reading. I love your photos, the little clay people, and your admission that you your home may be a hideaway but it is shared with others. So is mine. And I’m having trouble thinking of something to post this week. You’ve done a marvelous job!
