A couple of weeks ago, I escaped from the routines of my everyday life and disappeared into the woods for four days. As the video above explains, the intention of the trip was to shape a small writing retreat for myself. I packed up some pens, notebooks, my laptop, and printouts of a poetry project (along with some books and art and mediation supplies).
The goals of the retreat were low-key:
- Disconnect from social media, the internet, and other distractions that fill my time with mental clutter.
- Rest, relax, and rejuvenate through reading, walking among the trees, and meditation.
- Write or create things, if I feel so inclined.
