Day 26 - It Begins with You
When things are overwhelming and mind boggling, I drive. Sometimes just around in circles, sometimes around the block, sometimes farther away.
Here in my midwest home, this is 'my space'. My peace. Serenity. Simplicity.
This 'world' makes the world go away. The voices disappear. The thoughts (the ones I really need to think about even) all go away. I head this way thinking I need to clear my mind. I need a place to sit and think and relax and breathe. The only issue is I can't visit here without my lenses and therefore I end up snapping my feathered friends wishing I could include their soothing, sometimes dramatic sounds inside the photo.
And this is what I did this week. I drove. To here. Because I needed me time....away from my 'me time at home'. Away from the tornadic mind thoughts. Just me. And them.
Peace. Serenity. Simplicity.
I always leave here with a smile and lightened heart. Always.
