Have You Ever Wanted ...

to run away? No, not with the circus.  Those fucking clowns are too scary.

But, just shed your current life like a butterfly sheds its chrysalis and becomes something totally new, different and beautiful?   Be able to go from crawling on the ground to flying in the air?


Do you ever want to get in your car or on a plane, train, boat, bus and just “GO”?  No set place to be - traveling wherever you get to, enjoying the journey to the fullest and not worrying about the destination?


Can you imagine being in a big city or a small town or in a foreign country, where nobody knows you and you can finally be who you really are?


Do you crave living not just surviving?


To laugh a laugh that reaches your heart and smile a smile that reflects in your eyes?

To sleep peacefully and dream of beautiful places, with friendly people?  To wake and know that the new day will be full of promise and sunshine?

Your heart to stop pounding with fear, your mind to be clear of doom induced thoughts, your body to stop clenching in pain from the day-to-day miseries of life?

To be the hammer and not the nail?  To be the Phoenix instead of the ashes?



Have you ever wanted to run away?




Yeah, me too.

I run away by traveling a few times a year, and making the vacations as delicious as I can because of location, hotels and places to eat...

nitebyrd said...

Annie! I thought I lost you, that you had gone away! Hello! I'm glad to have found you again. Alas, I have zero disposable income at the moment to travel further than work but, Oh! someday ...

Sir Thomas said...

hell yes and I have done it...

and would love to do it again but with time it becomes more and more hard to just lets go...

Joker_SATX said...

All the time...I would if I could....

Ron said...

Yes...I do sometimes, so I know EXACTLY what you mean and how you feel.

For me, this is usually how a feel right before a change is about to occur. It's like shedding the old, making room for the new. That space, right before change.

So, keep the faith, Sis.

X ya bunches!

You are reading my mind. Every day, several times a day, I imagine starting fresh in a place like the one in that bottom picture.

Beryl said...

It will come. We all deserve to explore, especially those of us who've not done much of it. I have this firm belief that everyone gets their turn. You'll see...

It's funny but I thought about this today. I ran away and, whilst everyone knew me, they didnt know who I really was.

It's only in the last few weeks that Ive started to find the real me. Setting up on my own, being my own woman, becoming an independent business person.

Im really glad I ran away because I love the new me!

PS I love the graphics on your site!

Sir Thomas ~ That's part of the problem. Too much to let go of. Thank you for stopping by.

Joker ~ I think this is a common thought for many.

Ron ~ I wish there was a change coming. I think if things are going to change, I'm going to have to change them and I just don't have the energy.

Distracted ~ I want to walk down a path like that with a clear mind and happy heart.

Beryl ~ Thank you. I wonder if they make chocolate wine?

Ronjazz ~ From you lips to the Gods ears.

TEL ~ You and me, friend. Great minds think alike!

Joanna ~ I do believe that that is part of the problem, being unable to be ME. You give me hope, lovely lady. Thank you. The person that does these graphics is BRILLIANT!
