Solitude and Reflection

Though filled with cars, the parking lot is quiet. A van parks, a woman disappears into a building, and I slouch behind the wheel, oblivious. 

With school winding up for the grand finale, I have difficulty finding times to wind down. So I sit in my car, with a breeze wafting through an open window, and take a deep breath.

I am an introvert. Not intensely so, but just enough to make me retreat in times like this. For the next five minutes before my next appointment, I will just be. I will absorb all the interactions, ideas, sights, and sounds of the past week. As they settle in my mind, my heart can rest as well.

Question for you: How do you find rest in busy, stressful times?
