I’ve made a few attempts to start this, all of them relating our current situation. It is too awful for a lot of people. Each time I’ve stopped more upset than before. So here’s
a different tack, I’m on the escapist route, to run and hide from it all. I’m regressing to happier times for some respite and relief. I wrote this last year during a workshop with the Bealtaine Writers. It was given online for us by Catherine
Ann Cullen, courtesy of Poetry Ireland. Take yourselves away then, to your happy place for a while.
