Most of the time our lives are inundated with activity, media is always pushing things on your, telling you what’s happening around the world, family and friends need our time as do our pets, work can be draining, and then there’s our own brain speeding around with thoughts 24/7. So, every now and then I need to take time out and get away from things. Lucky for me, I live very close to the most gorgeous tea house run by monks.
The moment I step into the building, a serene calmness bathes me, and I leave all my worries at the door. This is my place to relax and do nothing but enjoy a delicious Citrus Mountain Tea while sitting at a long, wooden table that transports me into one of my fantasy stories. There’s even a fireplace in there for the colder months. What I like about the place is that not too many people have discovered it yet, so it’s not too crowded. When I’m finished, I take a walk through their garden, which has a huge pond filled with coy fish.
Time away from everything, even if for half an hour, brings to mind an array of story ideas I want to work on, along with any thoughts on how to fix anything I’m stuck on.
What about you? Do you have a place where you escape to when you need time out?
