Do you ever step into a zone that is just on the other side of here?
You know that place where you go as you watch your kids spill stuff on the floor, tug at your arm, turn up the radio, nearly burn their hand on the stove...all at the same time....
BUT you are watching it all unfold, in slow motion, from behind a thin layered wall of Saran wrap.
You know that wall that allows you to watch it all from a slight distance, as if you are not involved at all.
That's a pleasant place; tranquil even.
I go there from time to time.
Ever been there? It's peaceful, that place. I like it there.
