Going away


Happy hump day everyone! I hope you all had a good start of the week!

For me is not only the middle of this working week but and the end, because tomorrow I am going away. I’m going to Bulgaria to see my family and friends. I haven’t been there since April, so I am really looking forward to it and apart from that I love traveling. I get excited even going to the town next door. Imagine the excitement when I change country, when I get on the plane and find myself surrounded with white fluffy clouds and blue … the endless blue of the sky? I even have a poem about airplanes and airports, but I haven’t found the right picture for it yet, so now I hope on some airport I will have the chance to capture the exact image I’ve been thinking about.

Usually after every trip I come back with new ideas for poems and stories, traveling somehow feeds my imagination more than anything. And especially now when I’m not in love, when I’m not hurt or extremely happy, but just feeling normally and peacefully calm, now when I don’t have my heart up-side-down, I could use the inspiration of a trip. I could use the nice time with my family.

There were many events that made me leave my own country, many unpleasant moments that made me come to  Greece. Often when I go back to visit I still see those same things and I consider my choice to emigrate absolutely right,  but being with the family is like nothing else. So today’s post is for all families.

Speaking of people that we feel comfortable with, that have done something to brighten our days, here is where I want to tell you that on October 2, I will be a guest in Tom Baker‘s blog  Morning Erection, which for me is a big honor. It will be great if you stop by this Saturday and have a look at my guest post and Tom’s older posts too. I recommend one of his posts very strongly- “The most beautiful girl in the world“. Once again thank you Tom.

To end this hump day, I wish you all a great time. I will still have my poems coming every day thanks to wordpress “scheduling ahead posting” … and as for all of you, that you stop by my blog … stay safe and smile …always smile :) !!!

Love: B.

 

My home town

    I hope you have a wonderful time and that reconnecting with your friends inspires you in more ways than just poetry. Friends and family are very important to our mental health. Thanks for your continued promotion of my post. The honor, by the way is mine to have you guest post.

    Enjoy your vacation to the fullest.

    There’s no place like home in many respects,but it does seem you’ve carved out a life for yourself in Greece. Brave lady.
