Well…here I am. Atop a mountain in a far-flung pocket of regional New South Wales. Away from it all.
As I gaze over the top of my laptop, I can see clouds cruising across the mountain tops. They hang low, sealing in the chill.
The morning fog floods the mountains, like a wash of waves.
The fire is roaring and wood crackling. I’m at peace.
Funnily enough, I’ve ticked off more writing projects today than I have in a loooooong time. There’s something about escaping and separating yourself from routine to give you a fresh perspective.
In fact, I’ll soon be writing an article for the Natural Therapy Pages about solitude, based on my experiences up here. I hope it will be a therapeutic few weeks away from my real life.
I miss The Lad already, but I believe a break is beneficial not just for our selves but also for our loved ones. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder and it’s true. Time apart makes you appreciate time together.
Well, that’s it from me for one night. My wine glass has been topped up too many times to recall, so it’s best I step away from the keyboard!
Oh, and to get your slice of heaven, visit Cabins in the Clouds. It really is heaven on earth!
