Day 3553: Distance

Here and now, I’m trying to gain some distance from

Today’s Daily Bitch has something to say about distance …


… and so do many other notable people:

I take a little distance from things by blogging, accepting all my feelings, and sharing images like these:

I will try to gain some distance by letting stress and worry fade away for the day.

Also, I didn’t walk any distance at all yesterday because of bad weather and a VERY long work day. Today, I will walk my usual distance around home.

Here’s what I’ve been hearing in my head as I’ve been going the distance creating this “distance” post:

From a distance, I hope you can feel my gratitude for YOU.

  1. So much to think about distance, Ann, there and here! Happy Friday morning to you there, from here.

  2. Somehow, while recovering from a serious health scare and absorbing the loss of a colleague, you created a moving post filled with powerful, portable bridges for crossing that infinity that separates us. Thank you.

    Reading some of the quotes you included caused me to reflect on distance. And I recalled that there is always a distance between the moon and the earth, even though gravity is powerful and pulls at the moon. The moon doesn’t resist; it is always falling and velocity keeps it from reaching earth. That distance is important to their relationship, even essential. Even so, the moon is moving away from earth a tiny bit every year and yet, depending on other influences like the sun, the moon and earth may one day collide. Nobody knows.

    Distance is a mystery that can also make closeness possible. Thank you for your wise words. I hope your worries subside.

  3. We’ve gotten a lot closer to distance over the past few years but it’s also been a chance to get closer to our pets.

  4. Agreed.. and our plants.

  5. you are clearly ‘going the distance’ with all you’ve overcome

  6. I hope as you move some distance from your medical event you’ll be more at peace. And I’m very sorry to hear about the loss of your coworker. Very hard. 😢
