Flights of fancy...

The edge of Israel and the Mediterranean Sea 1998

I dream of far off
distant places,
faces formed in a
cloudless eye

If I could,
I would,
jump a plane
forgo all plans of fame,
leave no forwarding
address; respectfully
dump my mobile phone

it's the face of free
grace I crave,
tied to no one place.

I thirst to fly far and away


This week has been another crazy one, time has not been on my side at all. Some family members have been sick with a flu virus (nope, not piggy flu), one son-in-law has had chronic bacterial Pneumonia. I guess just the general pattern of life has been busier than usual. Perhaps that has prompted my day dreaming about travel. Hmmm, not maybe; definitely!

If you have a spare minute or two, scroll down a tiny way, to my last post. It's a poem I think you might enjoy. It's different, something a little...cheeky! There are photos with it, I took them.

Have a wonderful Friday and enjoy Spring, it's cooling down rapidly here. But doubtful it will get as cold as y'all experience in your winter.

If you've written 55 words, no more no less, drop
in on G-Man, leave a comment and he will pay you a visit.



  1. i love your flight of freedom!

  2. May you fly into that state of mine each minute the cell phone is not ringing with responsibility calling.

  3. We dragons can do that ( fly anywhere) and it ain't that great. The grass is always greener, the cows are always plumper, on the other side of the world. Plus your stupid problems fly with you.
    But dream on.

    Great poem and 55

    Ours is posted.

  4. I could do with a bit of that myself. To fly free - lovely.

  5. I always start to feel this way when my kids get obnoxious and demanding. I'd love to see them fend for themselves.

  6. Eaton...
    Always such a quality offering.
    We are so fortunate to have you in our little circle of friends.
    Thank you so much for this wonderful 55.
    Have a Great Week-End....G

  7. Freedom is the ultimate thing we all crave for!

  8. Ah..I share your sentiment..hope everything begins to chill for you and family gets better & my best for you this weekend-
