“If I want to be alone, some place I can write, I can read, I can pray, I can cry, I can do whatever I want – I go to the bathroom.” ~ Alicia Keys
I don’t do praying and to be honest I rarely write in the bathroom either, although it has been known but it is definitely a space that I do use at times to disappear. Of course a bath is an ideal time for some self loving but we have a busy house and for reasons that are beyond me, Mum being in the bath is often the perfect time to talk to her.
However there are those precious moments in the morning, currently as it is school holidays everyone else is still fast asleep and I pad naked across the landing (because clothes are definitely optional in this house because naked is normal and natural) the sunlight is streaming in through the window, the view of the garden beyond is calming and tranquil and I sit there and have my morning pee and take a few peaceful moments to contemplate life, the universe and everything. It is a precious time of my day.
This week I got myself a new phone, my old one was literally on its last legs. The new one, A Galaxy S10e, has a brilliant camera on it, both front and back and all sorts of funky camera options which I have not even started exploring yet but the very first morning I had it I sat on the toilet and worked out how to use the timer setting, put the camera on the floor and the resulting image is one I am really pleased with. I think me and this phone are gonna get on just fine.
