My super secret special spot

This is a camera phone pic on the docks at Cleveland's Edgewater park. It was a cool breeze and the sun was shining. It was also my favorite place to go to think and work things out in my hard head. I had never taken anyone here before because normally being around people is what motivated me to go. I recently I shared this moment with a special person (Lo) and now it will forever be "our" spot.

Do you have a "special place" to go? If so, would you take someone else to your sacred place and share with them the thing that is you?


Lo said...

Oh, hon. That just made me cry.

(A gentle, happy cry...not a hard boo-hoo.)

Of course, I cried when you took me to your special place.

I'm such a punk.

YOUR the best!!!

Funny here in Detroit,we used to have a place called Edgewater Park. It was like an amusement park type place. It has long been gone.

I don't have an outside place I go on a regular. I usually think in my room.

I gotta get back into going to my "spots".

There are spots that are special to me and others, but they are all unique to the individual I share them with, or the time of my life that they come from.

Sometimes I go out of my way and drive through the neighborhood I grew up in. Even though most everything has changed, there is still a feeling I get just rolling through there.

La Jolla Cove in La Jolla, CA...I'll make a photo blog soon. I found that place during my military days, and it was my quiet oasis for months after I settled in San Diego. Even now, I still go there when I need to let the water calm me.

Great post, DC, and I have opened my "place of peace" to a good friend.
