Away from prying eyes.

I always like getting back. After venturing out. Into the world at large. I feel more at ease. In my element. My cocoon.  Oh, I’m a world traveler. Especially after meeting my Italian amore. Makes me on the go. Makes life an adventure. But I’m most relaxed. When staying at home. In my familiar surroundings.  Where I savor moments of solitude. I’m just back. From a five-day visit. With my dying son Jack. Maybe I should have stayed longer. Until Jack actually dies. But I sensed that maybe Jack wants to die alone. Or with his wife Melinda at his bedside.  But certainly without me around. I suspect that dying should be a private thing. Away from prying eyes. --Jim

Personally, I’d have no qualms. About dying alone. It’s not pretty. Watching someone die. I’d not want to subject onlookers. To my own death. Better that I just fade away. Without a funeral. Without an obituary. One day here. The next day gone. --Jim

I’m a world traveler. Even when I stay at home. Because I am constantly exploring the cosmos. Worlds far beyond my physical reach. Instead, I am able to make spiritual journeys. To other planets. In our solar system. But I also head out to other galaxies. Even to colliding black holes. One billion light years away.  All it takes is a little imagination. I don’t even have to pack my bags. Don’t have to book a passage ahead of time. I just go. On a whim. --Jim

I wonder. If there's another world. Inside a black hole. A place for one's soul to flourish. In solitude.  Away from prying eyes. -Jim
