Google maps tells me it's someplace between 4,749 and 5,028 miles all told (not including any backtracking, sidestepping or crow-flying).
Google maps also tells me that only somewhere between 776 and 889 of those will be in a car, the rest being flown so as to have the extra time in preparation before entry and dedustification time prior to our return.
My brain has trouble with those figures as it is in constant quarrel with my heart who tells me that it may well be a state of mind that has no computable linear distance. If you're not there, you're too far away. And there's no such thing as TOO FAR away. It might as well be on the moon. Lookit me. I'm going to the moon!!!
My pocketbook squeals "Starvation". If I had a financial planner, it would scream "Madness".
But my heart. Again. Soothes with the promise of "HOME". And a smile settles on my soul with the very thought.... erasing the miles.
I'm so there right now.
So yeah. I'm local enough.
That touches me,,,, tears,,,, truly well spoken,,,, an expression with which I believe many of us can relate.
