If you could have a place to relax. A shelter from the rest of the world for those who need it, What would it look like?

Mine would be a medievalish sort of place. It would have a stone wall around it. With lots of climbing plants. It would have lots of fruit trees. Apples, plums, pears and peaches. There would also be a big berry patches with black berries, rasberries and strawberries. The buildings would have many windows with waterfalls and many poted trees inside.

It would be a little log cabin in the middle of a huge forest. With a little lake in front. And miles and miles from any other people.<br><br>
But with plumbing, because I hate using outhouses. It wouldn't have to have electricity though. Oooh, and lots of wildflowers all around the cabin.<br><br><br><br>
I could sit out by the lake, and read or sleep in the sun. And at night, I could get all snug and cozy in front of a nice fire. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Man, I wish I had a place like that right about now!!

I want a place up North. Away form this city so that I can actually see the stars at night. I would have a HUGE garden, and tall trees around the perimeter of the backyard. I agree with SilverC, need the plumbing. The house would be a cabin with a porch perfect for stargazing. To just lay out on a hammock with a blanket and be comfy, smelling the fresh scent of my gardens. And a nice lake nearby with a dock to go swimming as I wish, or to just watch. heh. I could read here, draw, anything I want... I really want that someday...<br><br><br><br>
So yeah, SilverC, I think you took everyone's. Mine is a bit different, but yours sounds amazing...

Simply a deserted beach with warm white sand and a crystal clear ocean. A cosy beach shack containing a surfboard and a comfy bed, running water and plenty of candles, would be on the sand and I have to have my SO with me. In the morning I could sit and feel the warmth of the first sun rays and at night lay on the sand and spend hours star gazing. Oh and my beach can't have any jellyfish or blue bottles or stingers, I hate them and they'd ruin it.

A small log cabin in a meadow, near a quiet wood and within walking distance of the beach. I would have a little garden next to it and a pet goose or something fruity like that. *ohhh yes* <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

The Moon would suffice nicely .... except for that pesky 'lack of air' annoyance and that equally pesky solar radiation that would kill me ... oh well nothing's perfect.

Mmmmm, cabin in the woods. I was way back on the hip of one of the mountains that form my valley just yesterday. We drove past the trail heads were flatlanders seldom venture. Down a long abandoned logging road to an antique landing I found a place that almost seemed holy. The trees were small from the altitude and twisted from the harsh elements. The view to the south was stunning, row upon row of craggy peeks of different color in the twilight atmosphere. The sun was settling into the crown of mountains before me. Behind me was a carpet of pine sweeping up to touch the glaciers that graced the highest elevations of the mountain I stood upon. There was a good size level area that I could imagine a one-room cottage with a loft and deck. A wood cook stove, a wall of books, windows and rocking chairs on the porch would be in my picture of sanctuary in this place. It already had mountain herbs growing in patches; fireweed, foxglove and abundant Canadian dogwood graced this place. Outhouses do not bother me, it is great to spend an early morning with the door propped open to see the scene before me.<br><br><br><br>
That was all a "what if" that grew out of my ride yesterday. My real sanctuary is a short hike from my front door. I go there nearly every evening in the summer. It is an easy climb above the cluster of houses where I live. The sounds of the 21st century are usually absent; there are only the whisper of the breeze playing with the leaves and the song of the nighthawks. I face west when I reach the end of this walk, often in time to see the sun set into the Pacific in the distance. There are plenty of places to sit, to pray and find balance to the life I live down the trail. If I go with a friend or the prince, we find that real talk comes easy on this walk, God meets us there, He walks to the ridge with us. Often when I turn around to head home in the fading light after the setting of the sun my eyes are met with the glory of the moon raising from the crags to the east. Whether I find the peace I need or whether it eludes me I leave this place with contentment and strength to face the night.<br><br><br><br>
We should all have a place like that.

Wow, that was amazing Kamila. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
My sanctuary is a meadow surrounded by trees in a mountain valley. I could lay in the grasses of the meadow watching the clouds and wander among the trees to a stream which was clean enough to drink from. Stand or sit on a cliff edge to watch some other animals in the valley. Listen to the sounds that can be better heard in a peaceful place like that.

Do any of you actually go to your described sanctuary? Whether in real life or in meditation?<br><br>
Because I go to mine almost everytime I meditate. There is much more to it than I described. On top of the grassy hill there is one tree that I like to sit under, then several feet away, there are flowers and bushes and more trees. There is also a secluded waterfall a short walk away. Behind the fall there is a large stone that sits just above the water level. So I can go there for more privacy if I have too many "visitors". At night there is often a large bonfire that celebrations are held at. The days are always warm with a very light breeze. The nights are always cool. I love going there.

grassy hills, lots of trees, overlooking a small lake with a bunch of tiny islands covered in trees. maybe a small cabin or just a lean-to or heck a tent even, but definately plumbing. lots of birds and animals and flowers that bloom in turn. like when one kind of plant is done blooming another starts, so that something is always in bloom.<br><br>
a nice big flat rock on the water's edge to lie on, and hiking trails all around and a lookout point.<br><br><br><br>
*thinks* you know, i HAVE been there <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br>
Pebble Beach is what we called it, it's where we had our summer camp a couple times back in girl guides when i was a kidling. i should find out where that was and go camping one of these days. it wasn't really a beach, there was like a 3 foot drop off the rock edge to the water and the water was shallow and full of rocks and pebbles (hence the name) but if i remember correctly it was walking distance to a small beach area
