But I do know how to grab sanity in the small moments. In between the weightier, more literary reads, I often have a mystery escape on the go. Above, my Kobo Vox screen features Val McDermid's Trick of the Dark which I disappeared into for the duration of ferry crossings twice daily last week. And even added an extra session before classes one day, topping it with the complementary treats of pastry (that's a Brioche with custard & fruit -- mmmm!) and great coffee. . .
Pausing to let the surrounding beauty permeate my spirit, slow my breathing, and expand my perspective is another pathway to contentment. . .
What about you? What's keeping you balanced, content, sane?
