The push of adventure, the pull of safety
I really resonate with the part about overstimulation. Being quiet inside is my heart's desire.
Nice piece! I've never seen an article on the subject before, although I'm new to the genre of Geeze Tips!
I am going to agree with @Rosmary, LOVE this. I only wish I wrote it! :) Its been lately that I too have felt the same way; either forced venture out - painfully - or as I age more, die sooner from comfortable alone-ness and daily routines.
I all-caps LOVE this one, Don. As usual, your wit is on point but this time x10. The whole thing is quotable to be honest because I felt like I was reading about myself (now that sounds narcissistic when I say that). I definitely need to be dragged out of my cave. Just LOVED this (okay - I’m gushing- time to stop!)
I'm right with you!!
Excellent post, Don! So well written. I relate to your dilemma, especially during this Age of Covid. But I am also considering taking a trip later this year.... to the UK!!! Do I have the Courage? Only time will tell.
