summer evenings … a swim or a walk on the beach before heading home. time with nic sharing our thoughts over cocktails at a local bar. easy weeknight meals eaten at the dining table. pizza at the beach. playing with milo. working on something creative. listening to the birds outside and watching them drink and bathe in the water bowl. going to bed early to read my current favourite book. impromptu dance parties or baking a cake – just because i feel like it.
in winter … candle and fire light, the hush of a dark and quiet space, a good book, a glass of wine or cup of tea. surrendering my thoughts and dreams to the fire with ritual & ceremony. a soak in the spa while it’s raining. board games. listening to quiet music, like the paper kites or carbon based life forms.
what’s your ideal evening? what do you do to nurture yourself? how often do you choose to give yourself this gift? does it vary winter to summer? where are you? who are you with?
