It’s that one place at home that you derive positive energy – a place of tranquility and peace. Everyone has their favourite corner of their own home. A private space that they feel most comfortable in, and impervious to the troubles of the world. Where’s yours?
The balcony is where I spend a lot of time at. I’ll sit and grab a good book, have my morning coffee while listening to the rhythmic rustlings of the potted plants. Mixed with the consistent sound of water from the pool downstairs, I enter a state of concentration and focus. By the time I finish my coffee, I would have done up my to-do list, have rough ideas for future projects and energised myself for the day (part of it is due to the coffee, I admit).
By night, this special corner transforms itself into a social space – one that caters to my extroverted side. I would sit with my wife and have my customary beer or a glass of whiskey and talk about everything – the past, the present and the future, while appreciating the night breeze. If we have visitors or friends over, we would be chilling around the round mini-coffee table and share our ridiculously funny stories and escapades.
Caring for my 3 potted plants on the balcony is also kind of a soothing experience. I don’t go so far as to talk and sing to my plants, but the idea of
not killing keeping them well, trimming them and seeing new leaves sprout seemed very satisfying.
