Our Dream Life

Thank you to Vanessa for the poem that sums up my life’s dreams… and frustrations.

Where We Are by Gerald Locklin

i envy those

who live in two places:

new york, say, and london;

wales and spain;

l.a. and paris;

hawaii and switzerland.

there is always the anticipation

of the change, the chance that what is wrong

is the result of where you are. i have

always loved both the freshness of

arriving and the relief of leaving. with

two homes every move would be a homecoming

i am not even considering the weather, hot

or cold, dry or wet. i am talking about hope.
