What I'm Missing


I miss having the perfect spot to reflect.

There is something about being able to sit in a swing and just think.  It's almost like the motion helps clarify what is running through my brain at 200 MPH.  I don't think I could do rocket science, but I could help create world peace ;o)

The other day as I was sitting on a friend's front porch the longing for a swing came back.  I need to find a freestanding one since I don't even have a front porch :o(   Maybe it will help create a calm in my life that is desperately needed.  I can see it now, sitting out front watching the world go by & enjoying a book while the girls are out back playing on the swingset or romping in the grass with Jedi.  Yes, a swing is a must have!

Where is your place of sernity?

We're thinking alike today, MJ :-) The problem is that Mill Creek is 1800 miles away in Annapolis, MD...so I need to find that serenity here. I like the idea of a swing.

I like porch swings, too. We don't have one. I'd settle for a rocking chair....

I miss having a place of serenity. I had a pretty vintage glider on the front porch of my old house, and I loved it. But, it was only used in the warmer months (and for hot flashes in the winter). I don't have that here in our city apartment. We do have a landscaped rooftop, with trees and a pond, so the dog and I sometimes go out there and sit, but out there you are never really alone....

My place of serenity? I wish! MJ, you have me longing for a porch swing big-time! Life has been simply nutty all year. When my head isn't swimming with a thousand different things, I keep hearing the mantra, "Just because I CAN multi-task, doesn't mean I WANT to." Oh, to uni-task...is it too much to ask?

I want a swing too...but for now my place is sitting on the step of my backyard deck with a cup of coffee and listening to the birds, the ocean, and the little laughs of my babies.
