A Word From The Wise
Make your fun and happiness
Where ever you are.
Don't let cities and places make you,
Take you afar.
Make your space what you want it to be,
And be free.

Poet's Notes about The Poem
I was reading recently the tragic story of the life of Abigail Folger, and how she moved from coast to coast, searching for meaning and happiness in life. Sometimes we think we'll be happy in another town, another city, another state. It's possible, but maybe, just maybe we're not living fully who we really are, in the place from which we are always wanting to escape.
