Close you eyes and imagine feeling warm and cozy. Now write about it: where are you? What is around you? What do you have with you? Who is with you or are you alone?
Since I dream of this expansive futuristic & heavily advanced science fiction world and life, mine is gonna be like that. Picture this : snow capped mountains and a valley with snow but the air is crisp, clean and exhilarating. Its in the evening and the moons – yes this is an alien planet – are out in full force, giving us tons of light. I’m in a spaceship, the size of a large, large mansion having just landed there. Outside it does look like a spaceship but the inside is what looks like a very luxurious but cozy and inviting home.
I want the luxurious & futuristic amenities inside the ship -large bedrooms with king sized beds and attached bathrooms, food & drink dispensers, separate clothing replicators. Proper kitchen, for when we want to try some cooking, a nice living room with big sofas, lush carpet and yes that big ole fireplace (without the need for actual wood, it’s more of an electronic fire that synthesizes the warmth of fire. Some entertainment stuff like a pool table, darts and a big game room etc.
Within the confines of the spaceship/home’s forcefield, we can enjoy the view of the mountains and the night sky. There are trees nearby and some alien birds and animals making the noises of the children of the night. None are scary or threatening in any way. It is now evening time and time to set the table for dinner and then it’s family time in the living room, burning logs on the fake fire place keeping the rooms cozy and warm. My wife is rounding up our 2 daughters and 1 son to go and wash up for dinner as the kids were playing games in one of the game rooms. I’m walking to the dinning area with Shawny my Golden retriever, right next to me.
My 2 cats – Chocolate & Lollipop are fast asleep on large cushions on one of the sofas and Junior my black lab/Dalmatian female dog is half asleep but being petted by my son and loving it. Despite the wind and cold breeze outside we are all feeling warm and safe inside. While I sets up two glass of wine for me and the wife, she gets the plates ready with food for the kids – meat and grilled veggies. I then get my oldest child to replicate some gourmet cat food in two large bowls for the cats. My younger daughter and son replicate two large bowls of dog chow for Shawny and Junior and they place all 4 bowls on the area set for the pets, who then come to enjoy their grub.
I have some big old pork chops with grilled veggies for me and my wife while we sip our wine and the family settles down for a nice meal and conversation. Dinner all done, the pets with their bellies full are back on the beds next to the fireplace while my wife and I cuddle on the couch. The kids arrive with some popcorn and cozy under blanket on the large sofa before we pick a movie to watch. This is heaven!
