That old homesick feeling
Have you ever felt homesick for something that is a wish in your mind. A time or place that doesn't really exist or belong to you. A place for gentle tranquility to relax and enjoy. I envision a lovely garden respite, with a hammock or swing in the sun or shade depending on what is needed. The sight and scent of flowers dressing up the garden for you to enjoy. An interesting book in hand that wraps your mind with the story, making you not want to stop reading. Off to the edge of the lovely garden is a beach of glistening sand and gentle waves calling you to come and wet your feet, walking along the edge with the waves slapping and tickeling your toes. A place to listen to the birds calling back to the waves, luring you mind and body into a place where you can think only about the loveliness of the day...that is what I am homesick for....but in my mind I go there ...I am there now..
