Living and working in a crazy city can be frazzling. I'm always searching for new ways to relax. I especially try to wind down on Fridays, so do yoga or have a massage. This past Friday evening we went to an exhibition, which also worked: staring in silence at a canvas that an artist has quietly laboured over for hours was most tranquil after a busy week.
Today, to soothe my soul, I'm reading The Cloudspotter's Guide by Gavin Pretor-Pinney. Then I might sweep the steps. And play with Hoops. And a storm has just started: all the better for staring out of the window.
