Where do you go when life gets to you?

I go here.... a park that I've grown up around all of my life. Somewhere that I have retreated to when I need an escape from it all. A place where I can find my center again.

I make my way on my bike to this school park…taking in the crisp cool air, the variety of dinner scent that’s seeping out of each house that I pass....

I sit myself down on the third swing from the right and I pump away. Ever since I was little swinging here has brought me a sort of inner peace, and tranquil thoughts.... it balances my mind. From two to twenty two, the feeling of fresh air hitting my face has never gotten old, and never lets me down.

Where do you go?


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Nice to meet you :-) Where do I go? I go to the gym, ha. It helps me to clear my mind and focus on working through my thoughts while i'm doing cardio.

  2. Beautiful pictures.

    Although I can't really do this where I live, I love to go to the beach. The sound of the ocean and the feel of the sand between my toes rids me of my worries.

  3. Lindsay: The gym is great! Killing two birds with one stone! and Ashley... the beach is also one of mine.... my mom always said besides church or temple its the closest we can get to God.
