Find a lounge or a hammock in some shade, where the sun peeks through the trees every now and again. Mix a Lemonade or an Iced Tea and pour yourself a tall glass over crushed ice. Smell some honeysuckle or the neighbor’s burgers on the grill or roses that have just bloomed.
Let the human sounds fade and listen for a bird chirping or a bee buzzing or the leaves as a breeze rustles them overhead. Open up a new book, maybe by a new author, or in a genre you don’t often read. Try a book by one of the wonderful authors here at Embracing Romance and let yourself be carried away to a pirate ship or a harem or the prairie or a drawing room.
