Alone, I miss out on wonder

This post came to me after reading today’s WordPress’s Daily Prompt.  The question was to you plan trips or wander spontaneously.  This Poster Coach says it all.

Endure the pain to get the good.

To answer the prompt: I am a compulsive trip planner, I want to get where I am going as quickly and easily as possible. My husband, however, is a happy wanderer. He likes to “Go Round Robin’s Barn” as my mother used to say.

Together we get there on time but enjoy wonders along the way.


Balance works best and partnering with others adds balance.  Partnering also brings pricks and pains.  Balancing the good and the bad is essential the closer the relationship.


One way to survive the pricks of close relationships is to follow the Five in One Rule. That rule? For every prick there must be five kisses or the equivalent of kisses.   And as always abuse cannot be tolerated.

Thank you all for all you do to care and share with others. Doing a little matters a lot.
