Why I smoke a pipe

I like to ponder, I like to reflect on what has passed and on the challenges ahead of me. For me sitting quietly for 30 – 40 minutes slowly sipping on a pipe is a great way to do this, sure it’s not everyone’s idea of contemplation but it works for me.

It allows me uninterrupted time that I have set aside specifically for relaxation. When I am in this state of mind, I find that solutions come to me more easily.


It’s important in life to take time out, however you do it and whatever works for you great. But for me little beats the quiet time with a good pipe and a tasty tobacco…
