September Hankerings



I'm a great one for hankering.

Any spare few minutes and away I go.

Hankering.

For places, feelings, people and emotions that grip the reins to my sanity.

A rather bad habit, I suspect.

But.

It does provide an escape route from the mania and mayhem that passes for "normal everyday life", around here, anyway.

Right now, I'd like to be back in the mountains, with all my worldly goods on my back, and nothing to contemplate except the wonders of creation.

With blue skies and crisp, pure air.

And no work. Or queens. Or incontinence pads. Or wheelchairs.

We all have bad habits.

Don't we?

I used to be big on hankering too but of late I haven't been able to get any really good hanker.

I have a hankering to see you. Any chance of that happening, any time soon? No? Well at least you finally satisfied my ongoing hankering for new material here! I know you have more where that lovely photo came from. Share!!

if hankering's a bad habit, a lot of us are in BIG trouble!

Ah Mr. Newberry .. out on good behaviour, I see.

I'm sure "HM's pleasure" lends itself to the most virulent form of the hankering virus.

Search on, brave knight.


Birdy ... and what would you be hankering for?? I find the things that I hanker for most are parts of the essence of my being ...

Molly .... 2 chances Molly ... need I say more??

Pauline ...tis probably one of the least vilified bad habits ... but a bad habit, it most certainly is! So, BIG TROUBLE lurks ...

Your hanker looks a bit cold and steep to me, and as for having my worldly goods on my back - doesn't appeal. But a holiday somewhere peaceful, yes, yes, yes, yes.

I'm often longing to go somewhere, anywhere, see as much of the beautiful world as possible.

Hankering is good Crisp clean air is good. Both much better than incontinence pads. May you realize your hankerings.

Ah yes, I am a bit prone to hankerings myself.

It's not a bad habit if it keeps you sane. I think I badly need to start hankering more, or perhaps to acknowledge the hankerings I already have.
