4 places I'd rather be right now
I started to write "almost anywhere but here" then I began to think about that. There are so many awful places and situations in which people are having to live, aren't there?! I am very blessed to be where I am. BUT, since you asked, I can't deny that I would rather be......
  1. Lying on a nearly-deserted white-sand beach with a cool breeze lifting my hair gently from my neck and a cold drink waiting nearby.
  2. Walking the deck of a cruise ship looking out over the water and feeling the gentle rock of the ship.
  3. Typing this blogpost from the scenic sunroom of my very own comfortably luxurious home, while calling to the cook, "Yes, chicken soup would be great for supper tonight. Go ahead and prepare it. Oh, and please ask the assistent when she returns to call the manicurist. My nails are a mess!"
  4. Teaching a class of perfectly behaved 7th graders who are just dying to learn more about English language structure and creative writing.
