Im looking forward to a time when I can return all mail
and shop only with cash,
when I can cancel my checking account,
grow my own produce,
live off the grid,
donate my dry-clean-only clothing
and uncomfortable shoes,
sell anything tied to a monthly payment,
clean out the clutter,
cash out the 401Ks,
skip doctor appointments
and chuck pill bottles,
sleep all day if I want,
do yoga like a pro,
ignore idiots of the world,
take public transportation
and leave my car in the road,
to let my hair grow out gray
and pluck my tweezers from the drawer
into the trash;

when it all becomes clear
and I laugh, full from the joke
of looking back.

When that day comes, and it will,
I'll be looking back and laughing with you.

But,  I'll hold off on letting my hair go gray, for now.  

Much enjoyed, Corinne~

Thanks JWesley!

Awww, Karilea, I love 'ya too! Yep, lets prance down that lane without a care! I grow so tired of all the trappings!

Thanks Blues! That will be the hardest, letting the hair go. But one day, it will be either that or a blue rinse, heaven forbid!

Thanks Iliana! I suppose it's a wish for the kind of freedom we can't possibly know here on earth.

Thanks Loner!

What's this doing way back here?

Well Corinne, it seems I've accomplished (or had accomplished TO me) most of your list...except for the yoga and that car thing ..LOL. So, I know what you mean.

You have been highly recommended to me, and I see why.  Great philosphy here and well written too.  KJ

Corrine, go for it, it's easier than you think (the hair, that is), take my word for it.
Ya might take some guff for a bit, but they get used to it.

This is Great Corinne, love it all, but I doubt I could get used to letting my hair grow out grey.

Wonderful from you as always
