I live out in the country. So, my favorite place is in the rocking chair on the front porch. The porch is pretty high so I can just look out over the fields and valley and think for hours. Or read a book. Or convert to the hammock for a nap.
i wish spring would hurry up... I'm getting cabin fever.
When I'm at college and I have nothing until fourth period, I walk to the nearest beach (I have two to choose from) and sit on a bench facing the sea, cold/hot drink in hand. Every time I go I always bring my notepad to write some poetry, but I'm too busy enjoying the view and seaside noises.
I don't really have a place of relaxation at home. Not with my ESTJ mother checking up on me every 15 minutes. Or the "What are you thinking about? What do you mean, "Thoughts are private for a reason"? You're not thinking of naughty things, are you?" Privacy means secrecy to her, and God forbid that in her household. If I had to choose a place at home, probably the living room, an hour before she comes home from work. But even then I'm too busy anticipating her return.
I used to go for a morning jog around this private-owned field, before the land owner threatened me not to go there again. There's something strangely poetic about watching the departure of a train in the early hours of the morning. I found that relaxing.
Usually in my room, but sometimes I go out on walks. There is an entire subdivision of mostly completed homes sitting empty near where I live. The lawns are all tended, streetlamps are on. The houses have the exterior lighting on and some lights on inside, yet it is completely vacant. The silence is just surreal, it really helps me clear my head and I've not the slightest idea why.
...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...
Do you live in franchise wasteland or something? How are these all gone?
Yes unfortunately walmart and Kroger comes in and small business are forced to pack up and move out. Would not be a problem until you starting getting super walmarts and expanded Krogers that suck up miles of land and every small business is completely overrun by stupid franchises.
