I finally did it! I made room in my office for my rocking chair. Over the years, I’ve moved this chair from living room to den and back again several times. There even came a time when I thought I didn’t have room for it anymore, and I tried to sell it. Twice. No buyers. It’s just as well. I always loved this chair.
If you think rocking chairs are only for old ladies, you’d be wrong. And just for the record, I’m not old! I have loved rocking chairs since I was a little girl.
There is something about the back and forth repetitive motion that is not only comforting, but it helps me think, a rocking meditation. Rocking takes me away from the life’s distractions into wonderful daydreams that fuel my writing.
My office retreat is almost perfect. All I need now is a large quantity of really good dark chocolate.
