Where were you going to chill when you were a child and now, where are you going ?
My childhood home is situated on a small farm. My parents encouraged me to go out and explore; both as a device to have a moment of peace and quiet, and as a sort of lesson. I would go out into the forest and sit in the trees, explore, wreak havic, be destructive, and relax. I’m living in the city now but I still apply much of the same rural tendencies as when I was little. I try to find moments and special spots alone to myself where I can do whatever I need to relax, albeit it reading, drawing, or playing with animals.
