With the approach of spring this year, we decided to make spending time out on our patio in our “postage stamp” yard a priority. The sweat involved to create a little sanctuary for escape has been well worth the effort.
In the blasting heat of summer, our time is limited to early morning or early evenings when the sun dips behind the mountains. Morning is my time. I turn on the water fountain and sit with my coffee listening to the tricking water as I admire the potted plants of flowers around it and go to my creative zone. Most morning ideas about the current WIP or the one that’s completed, but needs revisions flow through me. On the mornings the ideas don’t come, there is peace in an almost meditative way that gives me the energy to go to the computer and write what flows.
Today, I wanted to share a picture with you of my meditation spot. Next plan I plan a few additions such as a Buddha, and possibly a change in colors for the flowers, but I definitely will have my retreat again.
What about you? Do you have a place to retreat to find your inner peace or creativity?
