Sea View

By Camilla Swart

This is the question of the day. Where would you go if you could go anywhere? Let your imagination run wild.

Really – where would you go – if there was no social distancing and all the other rules that apply in a pandemic?
The wonderful thing is,
there is no right or wrong answer.

I would pack my coolest percale sheets and pillowcases, put my favourite pillow in it’s designated carrying bag,
pack a few items of clothing and hit the road!  Driving anywhere that isn’t for necessary shopping is a pleasure, and I
would make sure it would take me in the direction of the widest, warmest ocean.

I want to see that blue stretching to the horizon, with a beach to match.  I would like to walk until the sea, sand and
swooping gulls wash all the fuzz from my mind and my eyes open wide and clear.

It has to be warm. A comfortable warmth, no promise of heat, just warmth.  The sun is only hot enough to be pleasant.

I would love to have the freedom I once took entirely for granted, to go and keep going until I reach where I need to be,
to really be me. 

Where would you go? What would you do? What are you doing to get there?
