…. Do I find calm and quiet?
Very easy to answer this question. The bookstore. I go in, I get a hot chocolate if I am in the mood for one, and I take a sip. Standing within the walls filled with shelves of books does much for me.
*Bookstores calm my nerves, they are my de-stressors. Within minutes I feel myself relaxing. Any anxiety I am experiencing slides away. The longer I am in the bookstore, the better I feel, the more rejuvenated I get.
*Bookstores are a great place to acquire information, whether it is for a story I am working on, or for my own personal curiosity.
*There are like-minded people there, ones who love the written word.
*The joy and excitement of discovering a new to me author or the latest book from an author I like.
These are just a few reason why I like going to bookstores so much. I didn’t even go into details on membership discounts and sale books! But those are definitely great perks 🙂
How about you? Where in the world do you find calm and quiet?
