I’ve become a stay-at-home, desktop traveler.
When my iPhone coughs up…
featured photos from another era, I’m off,
remembering what it was like to really go.
Back then, pre-pandemic, you packed stuff before you rushed headlong toward adventure.
Sandwiches and sunscreen, towels and mats: lighthearted baggage, with the idea that fun was on the horizon.
So different from today when, even walking the dog, you must protect yourself.
I always carry mask, gel, wipes and brandish them when someone breaches my social distancing space.
My surgical mask is a bellows, inflating and deflating, fogging my glasses with the effort of being ambulatory whether at the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II or at Parco Lambro.
But she’s worth it.

I wanna go! Breathtaking photos, as always. Thanks Natalia 🙂
C’mon, Marthe! Let’s make plans. 2021 or 2022?
When I travel in my head I’m going to see my scattered children. I see their welcoming smiles and sometimes even feel their arms around me. I walk through their homes, placing rooms and favorite chairs and focusing once again on the paintings on the walls. I smell wonderful foods and enjoy the colors of the plates and cups. I hug them again and again and feel warm and content.
Then I blink and I am home alone and far away.
Beautifully said, Sue.
