Taking Flight – 2

Abstract design of umbrellas flying over sea in the sky

Taking Flight – 2

Dreaming of another place 
and a different time
keeps me centered
My flights of fancy are
an escape from the humdrum
an outlet for frustration
Carrying me above life’s traffic jam
that tethers me to the mundane
The irony? - That I willingly
surrendered my freedom
and compromised my future
for a life of servitude and acquiescence

      Dear Chuck you are so kind ☺️❤️ I want to thank you for always sharing my posts. For some reason the ping backs don’t show up my end anymore so I’m not always aware that you are doing so. But I know you are! So thank you my friend. I’m very grateful.

        Hi Christine, I always love to share your postings, and yes, you are correct i have been sharing them with my followers – always. I would love to discuss the lack of ping backs and probably likes/comments? WP has wrecked havoc on my blog as of the update they did on April 18, 2022 and I’m trying to track down what they did. Would love it if you email me so I can discuss it, if you would be so kind!!
        Chuck 😊💕🌹

    stabbing words we never want to say but mostly end up doing.

      Yes Jude, but sometimes they are words RDP that should be said, even if it’s only to yourself ☺️. How are you doing? Well I hope 💕

        You’re right. I’m well, Christine, still just about making professional writing a part of my life. Of course it’s always more fun than professional to me. Maybe some day it will be my day job🙏🏾
