Serene when I want to think
Serene when I listen to nature
Serene when I could be on my own
When everything gets hectic
I go to my serene place
A place which calms me down
A place where the wind whispers
A place where I can breathe again

So, what made you smile this week? Any fun stuff happening at the schools in your life? Any pretty things that make the holidays more lovely for you? Have you had a chance to wear pajamas to a place that normally wouldn’t be considered “socially acceptable” for jammy time? Tell me about it! 🙂
Cappadocia – one of the most fascinating places I’ve been to. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I first saw this geological oddity of honeycombed hills and towering boulders of otherworldly beauty. Its fantastical topography is matched by the human history. It lies in central Anatolia, in the heartland of what is now Turkey. People have long utilised the region’s soft stone, seeking shelter underground and leaving the countryside scattered with fascinating troglodyte-style architecture.
I’m not really an armadillo, but close enough! We’re both reptiles and amphibians.
