Do you have a bolt hole that you escape to when the going gets tough?
Not so much anymore, I usually try to stick around and solve the issue. However, last time time I did bolt, I took off for Colorado and stayed for eight months!
Yep! I'm very grateful for the capacity to compartmentalize within my mind. To be able to stay present and "escape" at the same time. At times, even when there are those who wish I wouldn't, I am traveling the infinite within and sometime without! It's so much fun! (though I have never amusingly referred to it as a bolt hole! LOL)
I figure if I can do this why should I wait until I have to? I also think all of us have this ability. We just choose to ignore it!
I really enjoyed the question!
May peace be with you!
I don't. I just try to deal with whatever is going on, and I hope it will pass.
Oh Yes I do....the bolt hole is usually my bedroom and in such a situation it becomes a prayer closet, then I also tell myself...It could have been worse....and once I do this,then the tough issue suddenly starts looking smaller and smaller.Try it .
My mom used to call it itchy feet, I would get into my car and drive and drive and drive, anywhere, especially if it was a mountain road. Now, I don't get that feeling very much anymore, and when things get tough, it usually doesn't last very long. During those times, I make a cup of tea and sit and relax and try to think about the positive things and that this too shall pass.
Sometimes I take my tent, get in my car, drive about 8 hours, then hole up in a campground for a while until I feel able to come back and face reality.
Yes there was one time during this winter, that I had to escape from the confines of home for awhile. However I never managed to get more then 3 miles from home and wound up at my cousins garage, which was not only engulfed in the odors of strong oil smells. But worse then that....engulfed in a thick haze from the smoke of his so-called fine Cuban cigar! (;
Hello Jbowden, Winter can be a very depressing times, it makes life a little more difficult to cope with, especially if space is limited. I completely understand, nice that you had somewhere safe to go, smells and all! Thank you for the comment.

Do you think life is like season? If winters come, can spring be far behind.

Are you afraid to comment? I wouldn't blame any married person if they didn't comment. I'm married 32 years, so I stopped adding when young. Being a singer, it was difficult to keep track.

Maybe its just me but I realize the work people put into their writing so I comment. Even if its just a thanks for sharing. How about you?

How do you provide comments on hubs? Do you write them immediately or come back after thinking?When I comment on hubs, I typically visit at least twice. The first time when I find it and decide I want to read it, and the second time when I leave a comment. I usually set aside a day to read many...

I often read. Then I read the comments. I'll only comment if I agree. I often click the buttons and the up button but don't leave a comment. What do you do?

Do you make a comment on every Hub you vote "up" after reading?I always do make a comment, even a short one, and just wondered if a lot of people read and vote without comment. Do you ever read and not vote? I have done that occasionally.
