Fully There

There’s something cathartic or therapeutic or curative in taking a few seconds to create a getaway.

When you can’t get away.

I may appear to be working or paying attention,

Doing responsible stuff.

Chances are good I am mentally somewhere else.

Unless I am with you,

Then you can be sure I am fully there.





And here,Β there’s no packing, unpacking, and cleanup.

    Ahh, appearances can be deceiving, but you still write beautifully while you’re out there.

    I so wish you lived closer – you are such a tonic for me xxx


    • πŸ™‚ You and me both Julie. If I ever have the great gift of going to Australia, it will only be because you are there. And we will drink tea. And you will introduce me to Anthony and Ming. And you will show me the farm. And tell me about Gar. πŸ™‚ We will live our blogs. πŸ™‚

    I absolutely love the last two lines…I read them a few times over and smiles a bit more each time. There’s something very romantic in the way you’ve constructed those lines! πŸ™‚ And here I say it one more time…
    Until I am with you
    Then you can be sure I am fully there πŸ™‚

  6. Reblogged this on suziedoeshealthy and commented:
    Chatter Blog talks about “get aways”. I am there now at a real get away which is definitely cathartic depending on where you go.
    If you can’t go then do as Chatter Blog writes “go mentally somewhere” else.

    What a perfect hide-away! It’s so cozy and appealing. May I borrow it sometimes?

    This is your sweet orange getaway, Colleen. Mine has changed since my single Mom camping trips, Randy, sometimes my parents with us.
    I’m dreaming of a villa, a castle or a cottage close to a charming town, somewhere far away from Ohio. . .
