No appointments for today, nowhere I have to go and nothing I have to do. Finally I have several hours of me-time ahead, yet I’m not sure how to spend them. I am actually having an internal discussion with myself.

Part of me wants to block out the outside world, especially the rain. Just turn on the heater, curl up on my sofa, wearing my warm slippers. Read a book, listen to R.E.M.’s Automatic For The People…

Part of me wants to go outside and feel the rain. Put on my raincoat, rubber boots, umbrella. Go to the forest, splish-splash across the muddy paths, while listening to R.E.M.’s Automatic For The People on my walkman…

I could make a deal with myself – the key to a peaceful relationship: compromise! First I’ll go to the wet, muddy forest, and then I’ll get warm again on my sofa and a cup of hot coco. “We” will have a nice day!
