I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?
~from Somewhere Only We Know by KEANE
I think it’s safe to say that at times, each of us have felt tied down, and not in a good way (and some of us feel tied down right now). Situations, obligations, determinations, and sometimes even affirmations keep us glued to certain places, certain jobs, or certain people.
We feel ourselves getting lost in the shuffle, and we long to break away, even if only temporarily. We long to reconnect to our dreams and our sense of individual person hood, even if only for a little while. We dream of a place we can go to achieve this re-connection, a place we can go where we can shut out the clamor and pressures imposed on us by the “have to’s.”
I’m dreaming of such a place today. At this point I have to content myself with visiting that place in my thoughts, yet one day . . . .
