Solitude

A Quiet Place to Sit

From March through November, the garden becomes an extension of the living area. Each day, I take out a sketch pad, a cup of coffee or tea, binoculars, my camera, or just my thoughts, and I spend a quiet hour in the garden.

This morning time connects me to nature’s cadence, which I carry with me to the busy afternoon in the office.

Somehow, the sometimes quick pace of the office doesn’t bother me so much because it’s confined to a few hours of the afternoon, and I know that the next morning, I can return to a quiet spot in the garden to reconnect to a healthier rhythm and pace.
