How to escape the reality?
We all have a place we escape to when everything goes down in our life. My place was always an old-fashion kitchen at my grandma’s place.
I loved to sit by the stove, look at the fire and keep silence for a while. It’s been helping me make my mind right. To sort out my thoughts. To filter out my feelings.
I believe it’s not a coincidence our best escapes are the ones we were used to have in the childhood. Today, it’s more difficult than ever to escape. We’re surrounded by smartfons, tablets, social media. We don’t move without them. We don’t live without them. We are caught in a trap of technology.
My very small escape today is reading a good book. Watching an old movie. Going for a long walk with my baby. Having a glass of wine in the evening. Having a hot shower. Making few yoga positions. Sitting in an empty church for a while to experience the pure silence.
I miss my grandma’s place.
