    I have an 18 acre woodlot on front of property with paths cut through it. When I was an active pastor, I walked the 18 hole local golf course..I didn't play, just walked it alone.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    I go to bed and to sleep, and then go to a whole new world of my imagination.

    I go to a baseball game.

    If it's not baseball season, I wait until April and go to a baseball game.

    I'm not saying it's healthy.

    I used to go to a quiet park and read a book. Since my son and grandson built us a patio in the back yard, and DH and I created a cute rock garden, I sit in the swing on the patio and read a book or just enjoy nature.

    I love to go the beach - any time of the year - to get away. BUT we have a big easy chair in the living room right next to a window that's almost as good :tongue3:

    I have a swing in my backyard where I go and sit when I need a break. In the last few days, tho, it has been too hot! We are having 100+ heat index today, so I'm staying inside!

    There's really nowhere to go, especially since I no longer drive. It's a major issue in my life- it is mentally pretty unbearable since we live in a city area and there's a lot of crime. So even if I did find a calm place in walking distance, it would be dangerous to be there.

    In most every place I've lived in, I've had a place to go and it was usually a secluded area by a river, ocean, or creek. Except in Alaska, but it was remote enough there that it wasn't as if you need to get away. You're away by definition! Very cool...
