I better chase this ghost before it leaves me.

I better chase this ghost before it leaves me.
On Friday I took a boat from Ropsten out to Storholmen, a tiny island outside of Lidingö. I had rented a small red cottage with an ocean view, to get away from work. Tying back to my latest post, a part of my new regime to keep creative and in control of my stress levels, I have implemented a routine where I am away from work for four consecutive days per month. Since I work pretty much every other day I can afford it, both money and timewise, and it really has become my mental salvation; always having an adventure ahead, a bubble of relaxation waiting for me. Last month it was Berlin, and this month it was a teeny tiny house in the Swedish archipelago. Next month; Rome. I can't wait. And most importantly, I've come to realise that where I am in life right now, this style of living really suits me. Maybe this is how I am supposed to live my life, who knows? I've never been one for convention, that's for sure. All I know is that right now grinding my head facedown into my craft for 25 days a month, and breathing for four, is my best option. On Saturday morning I woke up early to watch the sunrise from the wharf, and all I could feel was: calm. - Emily
