There’s something stirring.
It is the usual something. That same something that it always is.
Something about where I am and where I want to be.
A distance, if you like.
At certain times of the year I am too tired, too happy, too crushed, or simply just too unaware to consider the actual distance of this distance.
At other times, like this time, I am all too keenly aware of this same distance. And when I am, like now, this same thing always happens. This distance compounds, extends, multiplies, unfurls, reveals, makes plain and clear just how far I am from where I want to be.
So, where do I want to be?
And the answers are complex and further compounding.
Not here. Not there.
With them. But not with them.
Not that. Not there (again).
Somewhere. Elsewhere. Anywhere.
Not here. Not now. But there.
But I’m here.
