Soak


A good soak in the bath is one of those weekend rituals that I'd hate to part with. The solitude, deep breath, mind drifting, eyes closed - cleansing the body, reviving the soul.



"There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them."
Sylvia Plath

"I used to lie between cool, clean sheets at night after I'd had a bath, after I had washed my hair and scrubbed my knuckles and finger-nails and teeth. Then I could lie quite still in the dark with my face to the window with the trees in it, and talk to God."
Frances Farmer

  4. Oh, that quote of Frances Farmer, I can rely on, dream of! I can dream of a club-footed bathtub, scented candles, a delicate flower, divinely scented bath salts, bubbles, lush towels ... and the dream goes on ... and on.

    Thank you for allowing me a bit of dream.

    P.S. FYI, I do have a small bathroom, quite pretty, all decked in dove-grey-blue tiles, clean and nice smelling, but the bathtub is a joke. A mean joke. When you take into account that I am a heavy woman with bad knees, you will understand why soaking in a mean bathtub is a challenge one wouldn't think of taking.
