Self Portrait Challenge { slow }

This month's Self Portrait Challenge theme is Slow.

This word evokes thoughts of comfort and relaxation for me.

By nature of my very full life, I do not spend much time lounging around. However, I have been trying more in the last few months to take a few minutes here and there to relax, even if it's only once every two or three days. Reading is my relaxation method of choice.

It feels like a luxury, a real treat, to spend some time reading. When I get back on my feet to continue my day, I can feel a difference. I have enriched my life in a way that sitting in front of the television never does for me.
