What activity has most consistently given you a feeling of inner peace?
Walking beside the rolling river behind my house. Seeing what the latest high river has deposited on the shores. Things change out here moment by moment. Trees... The huge boulders sticking out from the cliffs, the wildlife... It's magical almost.
There is also a place... Ruins from a Ferry business about a mile or so down river. The guys wife (presumably) planted daffodils there hundreds of years ago. They have since grown wild and take up acres and acres of land. Every April a lot of the neighbors make the trek to see if they have all bloomed yet. It is nothing short of amazing!
Well, my therapist said I should take a whole stack of paper, then write the names of the people who piss me off the most on different sheets and then burn them. I've found this to be a highly cathartic process.
But now what am I supposed to do with all these sheets of paper?
I'm always more relaxed after taking a walk around a local trail under the canopy of scented trees around the lagoon. In fact I think I'll do that right now.
Otherwise, bicycling along the path by the coast is relaxing, or swimming in the evenings, under the stars.
