question And is it really so far-fetched to think that breaking the ritual might have played a part in my sudden and unexpected (unexpected by me, at least) silence? When you make your daily bread in the land of make-believe, the line between what is and what seems to be is much finer. Painters sometimes refuse to paint without wearing a certain hat, and baseball players who are hitting well won't change their socks. Question: What does 'the line between what is and what seems to be is much finer' imply? ( breaking the ritual or not is unclear to himself ? )

In this context the line between what's real and what is fantasy is very thin, making it easy to cross over from one reality to the other reality.

This is a little bit abstract/poetic. The full sentence for context is: "When you make your daily bread in the land of make-believe, the line between what is and what seems to be is much finer”. Without spending a lot of time interpreting this, it seems to be suggesting that ‘when you’re in the land of make-believe (i.e. not reality and/or dreaming), the difference between what is real and what just seems real (but isn’t) is very small’. Does this make any sense?

Your answer is certainly at such a higher level.
