Week 13: Eye Level
Did you ever have a dream of having that one special accessory for your home? I can't remember when I first thought of it. Probably when I saw it in a magazine, or maybe on a school excursion to one of the many museums in our area but for me, it was one of those world globes that sat spinning on its metal frame. It seemed so "old world" and full of romantic ideas of travelling to all the exotic places it displayed.
My dream came true a few years ago at an estate sale in my neighborhood. I would have paid ANY PRICE they had on it. Happily it was very much affordable and soon sat proudly in the corner of my family room. Perhaps not the most prestigious place, but it was where I could see it daily.
I have long since given up the dream of visiting all those exotic places, although I have been fortunate enough to have been to several. My greatest joy now is when the grand children come over and on occasion one or two of them will go over and spin the globe in its holder. I often wonder if it holds the same magic in their heads of the travel I once dreamed. I can only wish it for them, but then again, there really is no place like home, and dreams.
See you next week.
