allows you to travel. To escape. To become a better gardener, a more confident cook and even attempt to knit a Fair-Isle jumper. It will get you to think and think more and to ponder and sometimes have an epiphany. It will cause you to want to finally create that plan, write that long over-due real letter and go on that hike. Sometimes it'll get you to cry, to become a page-turner and laugh out loud.
Add music and decent coffee and perfect company and you may well have bliss on a humble Saturday.
