I travel more than I think, more than I know, further than I ever have. A garden table with breadcrumbs for the birds  - undercurrent wish – background noises – street fluidity – engines – fumes – afternoon liquid gold. The city turns like hands around the clock. I opened the lock, now I travel.

Inside it should be womb-like security, the lining made of the music of tears, of all the warmth that you cried. Still I spiral on, I have chosen to. Organic decisions are stronger than what you thought. Filigree essence screen – palpable air, filtered. Vibrating to the waves of life – a moment in which you dwell, a present shell in which you nestle. So I catch the thicker atmosphere around, like a salmon feeling the fresh water, absorbing it through its gills.

That is when, that is where, I travel. A flight of stairs, and up I go, never mind the holes in the threadbare oriental rugs,  the tarred lungs of curtains and walls. Up I go, to rooms of restless sleep printed in the air. When I open the creaking window, overcoming its resistance, I feel the quiet air that crowns the closed garden. An orderly renaissance. A white garden table stippled with breadcrumbs - nurturing dots - pointillism from a distance.
I know, in many ways, I travel.

Sometimes the most necessary trips aren't physical ones, but rather emotional and spiritual journeys that are even more3 needful. I love the way you express this longing.

journeys of the heart, journeys of the imagination are splendid motives of travel -- we have given tenure to the priorities in our lives and seek them as psychological comfort food -- for they are part and parcel of our value programming -- your impressions of these journeys wears a comfortable pair of shoes -- immovable physical residences do not prohibit our travel, simply the vehicle we choose -- you have found the who what when where how and why of personal satisfaction -- I am enamored with this work Axilea -- it is philosophical and story telling and introspection at a level that comforts this reader -- I bid you love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael

"I travel more than I think, ..."
the emotional release of it!
staying where we are is often the best point
of departure for the heart.
Your setting, your 'place' Axilea, is confident
and mature (even if the window creaks and there's
tobacco tar on the walls) you are comfortable in your own skin
and the conditions are ideal then for spiritual adventure.

Oooo, the attic within. I love it. Yours sounds creaky-freindly. My favorite inward traveling place is a forest. What a pretty poinillated picture you've penned. --Charlie

May your saucer come to overflow and drip.
