Here and there

I’ve many times thought I’d fancy a bit of ‘beam me up Scottie’ and a being able to flit effortlessly hither and thither – maybe even be in several places, enjoying an array of happy experiences simultaneously. But, though forgetful, I know exactly who I’m kidding too – well versed in the truth that my deepest contentment lies not in flitting, but in abiding awhile; not in experiencing many things at once, but revelling in this moment, now. Not there, but here, in and on my deep-down riverbank.
