It’s strange, the way that time away begins to nurture that creativity in my head. Away from social media, away from glaring screens, all energy used in walking, eating, drinking, socialising, instead of work and stress. Instead of have-to and should-be. A break from alarm clocks and commutes, from bank statements and bad news.
A few days in, my mind stretches into this new space, breathing and relaxing and unwinding. Words start to flow onto blank paper. Company inspires. Priorities are changed, reset.
And more words flow. And more.
