Describe an idyllic mental haven where you feel safe.

 I'm not entirely sure what's meant by that but as a writer, game designer and roleplayer I spend the majority of my life in mentally constructed 'other spaces' of one kind or another. I only feel safe or in a haven when they're under my control though - at least most of the time - they wouldn't be that much fun otherwise. So I feel secure and relaxed when I'm creating (and it's going well) whether spinning a yarn or moderating a game, somewhere where I can control the world, exercise my imagination and not be so subject to the random horrors of real life existence but can, rather, inflict them on readers and players.
