My Peaceful Place

Living in a big city like London can be really hectic and noisy a lot of the time, so for me – a quiet country girl at heart – it’s been necessary to find somewhere peaceful close to home to soothe my soul and recharge my batteries. My everyday peaceful place is only a couple of minutes from our small first floor flat in East London – along the Leytonstone edge of Wanstead Flats. I can actually see part of it beckoning me from the living room window – I just come out of the front door, turn right, walk a couple of hundred yards down the street and there it is, dusty dirt path drawing me in straight from the street, open and airy and informally very non-city-like. I walk here often, all year round, wandering and pondering, chasing away the cobwebs and setting the world to rights… this was my view of Wanstead Flats this afternoon, a wide expanse of blue sky and deep layers of clouds pillowed over the earthy greens of grass and foliage… and after my relaxing walk I returned home calm and collected, nurtured by nature… 🙂
