I feel that’s important for everyone to have their own place.
A place to be alone. A place to reflect and clear the mind.
For me. I actually have a few places I go to write, to think, to be happy
The home office : George Carlin once said “I just need a little place for my stuff.” And that’s what my former pantry, hide away is. The family can have the rest of the house. It can’t be more that 6ft by 6 ft. But it contains 30 years of memories.
The back deck: Not many things more relaxing than sitting out on the back deck while the sun sets after a long day.
Empty Road or Trail at 5AM: inner peace and an endorphin rush. Jogging as the sun comes up before the rest of the world rushes around you and sweeps you away.
The Restaurant Roof: when things get stressful in work or life there is one place I can go where no one will find me. Up the utility ladder of my restaurant. Whether is early in the morning or after a punishing rush. 15 ft in the air feels like miles away from all troubles.
