Hidden away in the attic at the top of my parents house is a little room, furnished with treasures that no one else in my family cares for. Books line shelves and tables are piled with displays of plants, maps and minerals, collected from past travellers, written by scholars and discarded by older family members.
Every night I slip away to this secret little room, my mother pretends I am sitting in the attic perfecting my embroidery or sketching, my father laughs indulgently and calls me his little scholar for he knows that I escape to the little attic to study.
I study the world in books. Books of stars and seas, and lands beyond those seas, of animals and plants, birds and mankind. I study sketches and make notes, my mind filled with thoughts and wonder of our world.
Many a night I have fallen asleep in my secret study dreaming of far off places and mapping in my mind exotic and exciting travels.
Then morning comes and I am still at my little table surrounding by books and the adventures and findings of others. But this morning is different, today I come of age and gain access to an inheritance left by my grandparents.
When I told my parents of my plans I fear my mother fainted on the spot but my father understood, in fact he gave me a fine leather bound journal and a pair of beautiful boots as he wished me safe and adventure filled travels of my own.
