Have you ever been reading and one word,
yes just one word, hits you in your heart? Recently in a magazine the word "longing" just jumped out and grabbed me.
What does it mean: yearning, strong, persistent desire or craving, especially for something unattainable or distant: filled with longing for home. an instance of this: a sudden longing to see old friends.
For me longing means adventure!
I long for adventures.
I longed for adventure even as a child,
to travel to places yet unseen,
or climb the highest tree,
or take off on my bicycle and travel as far as I could go.
Right this moment my longing is to travel.
To tell you the truth it doesn't much matter where,
but just to go, see, savor, learn, and embrace whatever there is out there.
I have thought long and hard about travel.
Well I do love France, yes I do!
But I love other places too.
Places yet unseen are beckoning me,
maybe Cuba, the east coast of the US, Belize, Alaska,
Greece, Turkey, India, China, Japan, Ireland, more of Spain,
Portugal, Slovenia, do you get it?
I want to see it all.
Don't get me wrong, I have loved all the travel I have done.
It is the longing in my heart, adventure!
What do you long for?
