Peace of mind can be found, in the silence of the night, cat purrs in your lap, rubber bands slapping on your wrist, vanilla ice cream eaten with a big spoon, hugging a tree, rolling down the meadow on the fresh green grass.
I have tried all of the above.
But, still, the method that gives me a complete sense of peace and puts me back into relatively normal state of mind, is the car driving.
Loud music, open windows and air freely whooshing through the car.
When I drive, I am me again.
And I drive without the destination. I just drive, into the Unknown. Sometimes I’m on the road for hours, sometimes I do just a quick speed test on the side road without any traffic. Burning tires is my speciality.
Cars, speed, music, open road in the night, they are my healers, my biggest supports.
I do wear a band on my hand sometimes, but no slapping on the wrist can be compared to this kinda feeling.
I do not need to drive today, though.
Vanilla ice and a large spoon. And a movie about impossible love, my favourite in the past few months : “The Code 46”.
My evening is going to be just….perfect.
