Ten Minute Escape

Out from the chaos and away from the troubles we seek a simple asylum. The location is a place in our minds that allows an escape from the daily grind. It is a place that is easily reached with pure imagination. The commute is quick and very painless.

My personal retreat is a 10 minute escape to my living room sofa with a cup of coffee that contains more sugar than coffee. The escape will likely include earphones to serenade my brain with melodies from Sir Rod Stewart. Music is the background as my brain dictates the destination.

This sense of peace that I feel for a few minutes is my refuge. It is my log cabin at the peak of a mountain. It is my beach umbrella tilted away from the sun on a deserted shore. It is a place in my head that calls me too often when I am unable to answer.

When I go there, the time is limited. I can only stay a few minutes. This precious peace is the only reason I am able to do the things that require so much of me. It is personal. It is sacred and it is important. It is my own special hideout from the world.

If you are looking for an awesome caregiver, I’ll be with you in a moment. I have 8 minutes left to be on a cruise ship in the Bahamas.   🙂

  1. I guess music is in the ears of the hearer. I find Rod’s music relaxing, but I’ve been a Rod fan for a very long time. Thanks for reading my post! 🙂


  2. I think I have similar hideout… But that also includes ear phones and nice music. It is the walk around my office campus listening to my favorite songs. Just two songs before I could encounter busy traffic. But it is bliss!
