Believing the stars are within reach, I keep imagining you will pull me into your orbit and say "Hi".
I thought I'd meet you at our favourite cafe where you'd be reading a book, I thought I'd meet you in the park as you were enjoying the fresh air. I thought I might meet you in a queue as we lined up to board an airplane for another far off destination. I just keep missing you!
Dear lost soul mate, since I didn't find you where I expected, maybe you can find me? That doe eyed girl who thinks you are great! Who appreciates that you are thoughtful, hopeful, positive, kind and articulate. You take chances and like to try different things. You enjoy that I listen and consider your needs while also offering you another way of seeing the world. You like that I bring warmth and colour to your life.
I'm that girl with the Australian accent asking for directions to the "milkbar" (that girl who really means 'corner store' but doesn't know the right words because she doesn't quite belong in your neighbourhood yet). You could show me the world through your eyes while we travel the globe.
As a teacher I'm able to work in many different countries. I've travelled widely, lived in Egypt and the UAE and I'm currently living in China. When I find a fellow adventurer, who loves his homeland but enjoys stepping into new horizons, I will relocate to his place or mine or we can try living in the space between.
