Sometimes the two sides are miles apart. I wish they could just be zipped together.
Potential, intention, promise on one side. Reality on the other.
This is going to be a blog about the tension and distance between what is wished for, hoped for, and what actually happens. Do we settle for compromise, do we settle down at all? Do we carry on down this avenue, or change tracks?

I love connections. I grew up in a family that valued connections. We lived in far away places and may dad always looked up relatives and friends when we returned to the Western Cape, South Africa. I have continued this quest of connecting with friends and relatives over the world, and modern technology has made it easier.
