Everyone should have a safe place to escape. Somewhere far away from the noise and stress of the day. For me, it’s being outdoors, being out in the woods or walking along the beach. The stillness allows me to think, or just empty my mind of all the things that have been demanding my attention. I can relax, if only for an hour. I can take that calm back with me, and find direction and order in the chaos that can be my life.
