Toads: Safe Place

Words Count With Mama Zen



Describe your safe place using 53 words or less. Mine is 52 words. Having been a therapist and in therapy, I immediately associated safe place with internal safe place. So that is what I wrote about.

My internal safe place is on the balcony of a mansion with overhanging gardens along Lake Como, Italy. The balcony is filled with gardens and statuary. I rock lazily in my hammock in the sun listening to the lapping waves below from the wake of boats and staring at the bluest sky.

  1. Wow, Lake Como, that's awesome. Lovely poetic prose. It would be nice to be there literally or figuratively. Your piece could easily be turned into a poem as well--the subject matter would lend itself to beautiful imagery :)

    1. Interestingly, we just bought an $80 hammock on sale at Plow & Hearth for $20. Nowhere to put it yet but I have my dream hammock! Thanks, MZ!
