Let’s Go Away Together…

Quotes and Notes #345, October 15

I can go to China and smell the flowers

I can go to China and smell the flowers

“For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils”
—William Wordsworth, “I Wander’d Lonely as a Cloud”

I can dance with the daffodils in the spring. I can enjoy the fragrance of the sasanqua in the fall. I can climb a mountain, surf a giant wave, and receive a kiss—all in my mind and all in an instant. My teacher in the second grade wrote on my report card, “Johnny wastes a lot of time.”—what she didn’t understand was that I had been busy with more important work.

Go with me today on a mental trip. Relax, close your eyes and know…
In only a moment, I can share a smile with the world
In only a moment, I can know that…
Everything is going to be all right

John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
