If You Could Be...

...anywhere right now, where would you be?











What would you do there?










And why?

I would be at my great aunt's house in California, The sun warm air would be filled with the scent of roses, the carp would come to the surface of the pool to greet me with their big eyes and Pavorotti's voice would float from all the open doors and windows. My aunt, my beautiful great aunt would still be alive.
Oh why do good things have to end!

This was a kind of wonderful question for me today. I realized I was tired and felt safe going back to my nice big bed and reading on this cold wintery day. I am exactly where I want to be *now.*
Isn't that a strange and wonderful realization.
Yes, with more energy or a different mood, many places call out to me. But right here, right now, this is it.
Thanks so much for helping me realize that!

Snowboarding at Winter Park, Colorado.

But I'm reading an email from my Lord Prince instead. And he's giving me more work.

I can say where I wouldn't have been today - at the doctor's office getting blood drawn. Ick.

Vic said...

You let them take your blood? And you didn't invite me?

Damn you, Author!

Puerto Rico. Beautiful; bright, vivid colors, sunny hot days, and the beach. Ah, that hotel was fantastic for our 10 anniversary, huh Amy.

Candy, it's cold and depressing here in the northern valley. That's why I'd rather be in Puerto rico.

Amy Thompson said...

Yes honey, that was great.

But I think I'd prefer to go back to Shasta, well, in a memory of course, because it's way too cold and dreary now. I love watching you run through the woods, breathing of the mountain air. I feel safe and comfortable there.

Excuse me while I take a little day dream with my coffee.

I think it's great, Anon, that you're happy where you are right now. That's a wonderful feeling, isn't it?

That's how I feel on most days, now that I live in Ruby Hollow.

But, if I could be anywhere else at the moment, I'd be on South Padre Island, visiting my daughter and her family.

Olivia Harper said...

Funny you should say that, Mom. If I could be anywhere else, I'd be in Ruby Hollow, visiting you!

Michael Harper said...

You know, Ann, I'm a doctor, and even I don't like to be at the doctor's office, getting blood drawn. Ick indeed.

Aidan said...

I have to get blood drawn a lot, so we can coat our bullets and arrows in it. My blood kills demons, oddly enough, being one.

Daryl Harper said...

Woah! That's way cool, Aidan. Wish my blood had magical powers like that.

It seems like I am/have been somewhere out of time.
I go there to drift and to let go, to be.
It is very relaxing.
And in letting go, all form leaves me, until a new form emerges and I shapeshift and reenter the world as the being I have become.

Sometimes I wish I were in the Bactria of my childhood. I'm unable to time-travel, though, and the world is a very different place now. Nothing is like it was when I was small.

Ricky said...

I wish it were a summer day and I was at my dad's old lake house, fishing. My uncle owns the property now. I can go pretty much whenever I want, but it doesn't feel right to ask too often, so I don't.

Aidan said...

You should go. Your uncle would like to see you more often, Ricky.

Aidan said...

Thanks Daryl. It's not all that great though. Lots of drawn blood. And lots of skepticism from the rest of Sentinel.

Gabby said...

S--t, I'd like to be anywhere but here in this stinking remand home. You can't imagine how ugly and boring it is!
I should say I'd like to be in the Wood, and I would if it weren't so close and when I am there I'm always afraid of screwing up and letting the rest of the gang find out about it. If that happened I can't think what they'd do to the place. I'd rather die,

Laura Martone said...

Oh, Ricky, that takes me back... I'm on Conch Key right now, in the Florida Keys, and it's lovely (if chilly), but if I could be anywhere else, I'd be at my dad's old fishing camp south of New Orleans, where I spent many a happy childhood day, frolicking on the dock with my dad, catching fish under the spotlight, and relaxing with little care in the world.

Sadly, though, Hurricane Katrina washed it away, so all that's left are posts. Boo-hiss.
