    My Bubble

    I have a happy place that I tend to escape to in my head. It may seem weird, but I really do. And every time I am in a bubble. Floating high above every one's heads. No one can see me. I can see them but the mindless chatter is shut out. I can still feel the breeze in my bubble...

    My Happy Place.

    I have one. I'm sure everyone does. In my mind it's a place where I can go to calm down, to feel safe, be happy. I've got it down to the details of what kind of flowers and trees are there, even the seasons ... but in real life it's harder. I don't really have a happy place. I...

    A View ...

    I go there a lot.  My happy place is the best.  It's sunny and warm and there is nothing to worry about.  I can conjure up the company of anyone I want to be with and do whatever I want.  A glass of wine is on hand at all times and the nicest of snacks if I...
