When My Ship Comes In
When my ship comes in I would like to travel a bit more. I want to rent an apartment for a month and live like a local in Italy, and France. I want to go meet face-to-face a few bloggers (- trust me I am not a stalker.) I would love to go back to Germany and enjoy the factory delivery experience again (though with the few miles I drive my car will easily last another 20 years - by then I will be so old.) I want to watch the sun set in Key West, and rise of Athens. I need to go back to Hawaii, now that I can walk with greater ease, and see more of the wonders. There are a handful of charities that inspire me, I support them now, when my ship comes in I'd be even more generous.
In many ways my ship has come in.
I am in reasonably good health. I don't worry about keeping a roof over my head, good food on the table, I have access to clean water, I have enough clothes to last a lifetime. I am loved. I have friends. I am able to make a difference in the lives of others.
I stay in my comfort zone, seldom glimpsing the places in the world where many people lack the basics that I already have. Why should I worry about my ship coming in, it already has.
Has your ship come in?
