Lucia has something to say

Sometimes

Sometimes when I’m tucked in bed and my eyes are closed, I imagine I’m in a bed somewhere else. Under the big white puffy comforter in Belgium. In my friend’s upstairs bedroom that feels safe and wonderful. Sleeping under the stars at the edge of the Sahara.

Sometimes I go to yoga in the middle of the day since my fitness center is in the building where I work.

Sometimes I visit the thrift store pretending I’m an artist and come home with all sorts of wonderful stuff to morph into something else. The wooden boxes, ephemera, paint, and this-n-thats are filling my basement.

Sometimes I think I’ll be a writer when I grow up.

Sometimes I stare at my tomato plants to see if they’ve grown.

Sometimes I wonder what I’m doing out here in blogland. Picture Carmen Miranda tripping over Dick Van Dyke’s footstool and that’s pretty much how I got here.

I stare at my plants, too. I talk to them, actually. I'm a little bit strange.

But that is what blogland is all about, right? Somewhere out there is someone who doesn't think we are all that strange...

I often do the same thing. At night, in the dark, I imagine that I'm back in Khon Kaen.. feeling safe and warm. It's a wonderful way to go to sleep.

Ending up in Blogville: I never, ever, would have considered such a thing except for the suggestions by some people on a Yahoo list who thought it would be a good thing for me to do.

Perhaps we're all here for a reason, eh? :)

Carmen Miranda tripping over a stool like Dick Van Dyke. Um. I don't think I'll forget that one for a while! LOL


Peace,

I loved your post and how you write. We are lucky to have you in the blog world, we would be poorer without your presence.

You know, I've been staring at my tomato plant (yes, singular) lately. How come my neighbor's plants are big and thick with yellow blossoms, and mine is just stunted?

I've grown tomato plants for years. Why is this one so sad?

Maybe it's lonely?

I think you are all those things, and you are everywhere, and I am glad to know you.

Footstools are meant for tripping over. Just as fruit logically goes on one's head.

We're glad you are here.

This is funny, I did a sometimes post recently too. Great minds?

I think you should be a writer when you grow up too.

Sometimes you rub your dog's belly and he smiles?
