*Writer's Workshop: Writing Prompt "Where would you like to be?"

Mama Kat's Writing Prompt: Where would you like to be? (

Wow, are there so many ways to interpret this question.

Physically, I dream of being on a beach somewhere. Squishing my toes in the sand and listening to the water lap against the shore while snuggling with Sadie in a hammock slung between two palm trees. A Carribean beach, a South Pacific beach, a Hawaiian beach, it's all the same to me. Peace and tranquility and relaxation.

Financially, I'd like to be closer to black than red. :)

Professionally, and personally on some level, I'd like to be anywhere but here. I'm restless. I have always been. Never able to keep in one place for too long. It's not a gift. It's a curse. It means that I am constantly imagining that things might be better if they were some other way. Some other place. Some other space. Some other version of my life.

What's it all boil down to? Escape. It doesn't matter where I am, I'd like to be somewhere else. Someone else? Perhaps at times. I love being Sadie's Mommy and John's wife, but I hate other aspects of my life and who I am. Is that normal? Probably not, but have I ever claimed to be normal? I have no delusions.

Life. Love. The Pursuit of Happiness. That's where I'd like to be: Unconditionally loved and indescribably blissful. That's not too much to ask is it?!?


  1. I fantasize about roads not taken all the time. I think not liking certain aspects of your life and who you are means that you actually take the time to examine them. I'm sending you little particles of bliss.

  2. Stopping by from Mama Kat's!

    I'm with you on wanting to be closer to black and further from red LOL... I couldn't bring myself to pick that assignment because I felt like I had to cover so much!

  4. Very nicely written...

    And no, it's not too must to ask. Sometimes I ask for the same things, but I wonder if I've actually already been given them, yet too jaded to even notice.

    Life is tough lol!
