It’s been a long time, and I am oh so rusty. But I’m jumping in anyway, to share the fun with the girls over at Kate’s place for Five Minute Friday.
They caught my eye as I pulled from onto the highway, my blinker dancing to the tune on my radio and echoing the beats in my heart. Too fast. The primal feelings kicked in, like a rabbit hounded by the fox and running towards her hole, towards safety. They are so far away, the snow covered peaks and that’s right where I wanted to be. The deepest places in me called for it. To be away.
Away from the city. Away from the cars and the people and the mean girl club. Away from the broken hearts and the bruised feelings. Wrapped instead in the comfort of my breath frozen in the air and the snow crunching beneath my feet.
I ache for relief.
This world of hectic schedules and putting yourself out there to be disappointed time after time. They say that comparison is the thief of joy, and lord it its. But it is so hard not to compare when you read the words and the announcements and the notices and you seem to still fall short. Shortcomings that stack upon themselves and the lacking within your body or your skill.
