Favourite place to be

16 08 2011

This is DD’s favourite place to be. At the park, yes. But more specifically, in a swing.

As I push her back and forth, she closes her eyes and let’s the breeze caress her face.

Back and forth. Back and forth – a light smile on her face.

While I am the agent of physics moving DD through the air, I’ve come to realize I’m not really a part of the moment.

This is DD’s quiet time.

Her meditation. Her favourite place to be.

What is your favourite place to be? In all honesty, my first response is anywhere I’m with my family. But if it’s a favourite place just for me, I’d say curled up on my couch with a glass of wine and a good book. πŸ™‚

My first instinct was to say with my family too, but I’d have to say in bed with a book and some chocolates.

Book + chocolate. Book + wine. We’re kindred spirits really. πŸ™‚

Outside on the cottage dock (anyone’s cottage will do), looking up at the constellations. In town I forget how big and bright the night sky is, and this gives me a whole new perspective πŸ™‚

Stef,

I agree – anyone’s cottage will do – LOL. Hope you’re getting lots of that time this summer.
