Chatter Blog talks about “get aways”. I am there now at a real get away which is definitely cathartic depending on where you go.
If you can’t go then do as Chatter Blog writes go “mentally somewhere else.”
There’s something cathartic or therapeutic or curative in taking a few seconds to create a getaway.
When you can’t get away.
I may appear to be working or paying attention,
Doing responsible stuff.
Chances are good I am mentally somewhere else.
Unless I am with you,
Then you can be sure I am fully there.
And here, there’s no packing, unpacking, and cleanup.
