SWEDEN, NOT S-PAIN

The discomfort in my foot 
Clearly keeps me sitting,
Offering, therefore,
Daily opportunity 
To reflect, to introspect, 
To write every day, 
For long hours, every day.

I joked about initially 
misperceiving which "S" 
Country was my 
destined destination
(Not Spain, but SWEDEN);
Staffan quickly quipped, 
"SWEDEN, not S-pain."

Another layer to ponder 
And reflect upon. 
Too much investment 
In life's being hard
Effortful, difficult,
All work and no play.
Unbalanced, off kilter.

In addition to consistent
And persistent time,
I have  receive external
Support, permission,
Encouragement, 
And validation. 
GIVE SAME TO SELF!
