Six Word Saturday - 6WS - 13 August 2011









Quips and quotes and all things nice can be found right here with another edition of

SIX   --   WORD  --   SATURDAY           AKA    --     6WS

This is where Cate from  "Show My Face Blog" has us put some sort of order to our life with using six words..... Thank you Cate!

Here is my offering.... today.....



         DREAMING OF
       DISTANT PLACES
           AND THINGS


DO YOU EVER DO THAT TOO?  The feeling is ever so apparent after getting up really early to drive somebody else to the airport......

We are under the spell always of what is distant from us.
It is not in our nature to desire passionately what is near at hand. - Alec Waugh

"Live your questions now, and perhaps even without knowing it, you will live along some distant day into your answers." - Rainer Maria Rilke

So if you feel the urge to go that extra distance as well to offer your own six words go here

I, too, do this. Daily, I dream about my home planet.

Elaine said...

I often dream of distant places - places I'd like to travel to - particularly when I am doing something dull, like the housework!

Fi said...

Life would be very boring without our dreams - and dreaming of far, distant places is a must

...me too...dream a lot...lately i've been dreaming about retiring...aaaaaaah...going off to see new places on any day i choose. :)

AudreyO said...

I love to explore. I actually continually look for hidden places here in my town so that I'm always discovering something new :)

I am always dreaming of being other places. It is the only way I get to escape, is to dream I am some where else! (where my daughter and husband dont know about)

Tinman said...

I think everyone does it, it's helps during the dull parts of our day, and I think it's healthy too, it's no different to letting a book take you to far away places.

Galen Pearl said...

What distant places and things are you dreaming of? I'm dreaming almost the opposite--places and things inside, right here, right now. Okay, that was more than 6 words!

Jim said...

Good going, Karen ~~ We like to get the travel company advertising brochures, especially the cruise lines', so that we can see how those distant places would fit into our lives.
I will tell you right now, the answer is that they fit very well.

honestly, i'm fine where i am, though i'd wish to improve on a few things... but when i dream of things abroad, i'm often drawn towards Tuscany, Italia!! one day, perhaps...
