There’s a World: The Exercise

Listen to the prologue. Be in two places at once!

Play with the idea of an alternate storyline or universe in your life–a parallel dimension happening at the same time but with different outcomes. In your exercise, repeat the phrase, “there’s a world” and describe all that’s happening in that world from your point of view/ For instance: There’s a world where on a Thursday in March my heart isn’t broken, there’s a world where I wear a green dress to prom with Bojo, there’s a world where my cat is young again and my dog has the legs of a pup half his age. This could be you in the past or in the present.
