This week the Lens-Artists challenge is about your favorite hideaway or safe place where you can go to escape from it all. This was a tough one so I have to lean on sports a bit to pull this one out.
I spent a whole lot of time as a youngster and beyond on the basketball courts…probably too much time. It’s a wonder that my knees haven’t completely blown out by now…lol. Anyway, sports can provide that feeling of getting away from it all while you’re out there playing and competing. For me, basketball was that game.
A few years back I went to visit the Hoosier gym in Knightstown, Indiana where they filmed the movie Hoosiers. As I walked out onto the court, I got the feeling of being home even now long after I’ve quit playing. Pretty much any gym will do that to me. I guess it’s a feeling of comfort and familiarity with a lot of great memories tossed in.
And now there’s another favorite hideaway/escape that I enjoy…the golf course 🙂
Thanks to Ann-Christine for this week’s Lens-Artists Challenge theme.
