Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 7 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.
Your “Secret Subject” is:
Well, you see, there was this one time…….

There’s a bend in the river. I don’t know which bend, hell, I don’t even know which river. It could be the Pigeon River or it could be the mighty Green. Carving out an existence in the rugged Eastern Tennessee & North Carolina mountains.
There’s nothing special about this bend in the river except to me that is. I’ve never stood on its banks at least not physically. I’ve seen this specific bend hundred of times from the window of whatever car I was traveling in. Always waiting, expecting this small glimpse of a whole other world.
The road between South Carolina & Kentucky has played a huge part of my life. Carrying me back & forth from my old life to my new one. A well-worn path with a quick sighting of a dear old friend.
The first time I saw this majestic curve in the river it grabbed at my heart and has never let go. It calls to me playing a melody that is both confusing yet comforting. It literally causes a pain in my heart every time I go past without stopping. A feeling of deep sadness that I’m missing something vital to my life, to my story.
It pulls at me like the pull of a child for its mother’s womb. An almost symbiotic relationship from it to me. I feel as if it holds the secrets that are only mine to uncover. It feels like my “safe-spot”, my escape hatch, my exit from society, a realm of an alternate universe. A place that when shit hits the fan this is the place I should run too.
What shit? I don’t even know. Just a whisper in the back of my mind that says, “run to me and I’ll keep you safe. I’m yours”. On one of those trips, after spotting my bend I looked at my husband and said, “If we’re ever separated by anything this where I will wait for you. Forever if need be.”
I’m sure at first he thought I’d lost my mind, and maybe I have, but when he looked into my eyes he must have seen the hope, the feeling of desperation in my eyes. He held my hand and said, “of course love, I’ll be there waiting”.
I think that’s what true love is all about. When you will follow your true love anywhere without needing to know the answer why.
