A sanctuary is a place you can escape to, to catch your breath and remember who you are. Write about the place you go to when everything is a bit too much.
I don’t really have any place like that in particular. Home is a place that I can find to be my sanctuary if I am alone. Sometimes there is nothing like staying in my apartment with my folks gone. I have the place to myself and I revel in the peace and quiet. No tv blaring religious crap or nonsensical soap operas and I can stand at the balcony for a while if there is a cool breeze and the sun isn’t blaring down. I enjoy the solitude and calm serene at those moments and days. Ofcourse in an hour’s time I would be blasting metal music!
Otherwise where would I go to retreat? Hey my favourite bars are a place where I do consider a quiet contemplation time. I usually go in the afternoons like from 12:00 to 3 or 4pm and the crowds are usually less at those times. I cn sit at a table drink a couple of beers or some vodka and eat some food and not be disturbed about anything – unless it’s the waiter who wants to know if I would like to order another one. Or even a cafe that has a few table empty so I can sit and drink coffee for a while without having to hear non-stop chatter from the next tables. It’s all relative man. I can escape to where I want if I get some solitude and quite.
