What do you daydream about? Are you like me and your mind wanders around endless thoughts, or are you focused on only a few? Among all the thoughts about faraway places and fabulous parties I want to throw, there is one daydream that is always kind of lingering.
As I've said many times before, I do love and am grateful for my very blessed life, and if I come to the end of my days and I am lucky enough to be living it the same way as I do today, I will be quite content and consider myself one of the lucky ones.
Still. I daydream. I imagine life in a little cottage by a pond with steps down from the front door that lead to the woods where Andrew Henry and I walk the dogs every day (in this daydream we have more than one dog, oh and I am skinny again with fabulous hair but I digress). There is a cute town about 20 minutes down the road and a good sized city about 1 hour away. There are two chairs on the porch. I see this place in my head almost every day. I've never been to such a place, except in my mind, but it nags at me all the time. It just creeps in at the most unexpected times, this place. I see the same image and I know what it feels like to be there. I feel it pulling me. This place.
I imagine some people feel this way about moving to the "big city" or the French countryside or to a remote island. I don't know, but I imagine they do. I love this mysterious desert city I live in, with it's amazing sunsets and mostly wonderful weather, but this cottage cabin place beckons me still. Is it a memory, a premonition, or the result of too much sugar? One never knows.
