It’s a mystical land, “There”, with its seductive promise of splendour, glory, Enough and All. You want to get to There. But you’re Here.

Why?

I have some theories.

You’re anxious that you don’t know where There is.

You’re troubled by the effort it will take to get There.

You’re terrified that when you get There, it’ll be the wrong There.

Worse still, when you get There, you’re afraid They’ll find out you’re not really supposed to be There, after all.

All perfectly reasonable fears, Love. 

And still, There beckons.

Know how you WILL get There?

Step by step. With courage.

Before you head off though, will you take a moment to thank Here? For the ground beneath your feet. For the known and the shown.

Now, blow Here a tender kiss and set off on your way.

It’s time.
