    William Blake, my favorite hero, was paddled by his father and mother for seeing angels through the window.  He would see angels peering in through the window and caught heck for it but he refused to stop seeing angels.  So they remained there in the background all his life.  One of my daughters, who spent a good bit of her time by herself, but she had an imaginary playmate that was so real to her and it also was a double, she named it after herself and called it “My Suzy”.  And any time anything bad would happen “My Suzy” did it.
