One day…

Waves crashing against the cliffs, the spray covering my face with tiny salty droplets. Hundreds of seabirds are hovering in the blistering wind. Threatening clouds race across the sky as the drama of the storm unfolds.

A lonely cottage huddles behind some windswept trees. The flickering light from the small window is beckoning. As I enter, the warmth washes over me. All I can hear is the spitting of logs in the fireplace and the muted sound of the wind howling outside.

I sink into the comfortable armchair. A book in one hand, a cup of tea in the other. As I swirl the golden liquid in the oversized cup, I cannot contain the contented sigh that escapes.

Here I can rest. Here I can recharge. This is my place. One day.

    Haha … I was just daydreaming. I’d love a place like that to escape to every once in a while. To get away from the city.

    *sigh* Sounds perfect. 😉

    That sounds like my happy place on Rainy Lake. Substituting chair for dock and tea for beer.
