When I want to just relax and take some time to be still, I go to the coffee shop. It's one of my favorite past-times. It allows me to focus on writing, creating or just sitting still and listen to the music flowing throughout.
It's my urban oasis, a place to take in what the world is offering in measured dosages. And right now with so much going on, sometimes you have to shut the world off to reclaim your sanity. When you can find a place that offers so much but yet is such a simple place, embrace it.
