Sanctuary

Don't adjust the coat you sit upon, brush your toes on the rough grass and pine needles and relish the uncomfortable sensation. Let the wind drift past you, like a whispered secret you're not bothered to listen to. Block out the songs of the tweeting birds overhead and the buzzing noise of the occasional car behind you.
