Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “so far.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!
We’ve all heard it, or said it. ‘So near, and yet so far.’ Yet ‘so far’ is not just a matter of distance.
In our day-to-day life we can be so blinkered that we only see as far as the end of our nose, or perhaps choose to see just that far, as anything beyond is outside our comfort zone and we have to think of someone other than ourselves.
Then we may say ‘So far as I can tell……..’ when perhaps we mean ‘As far as I can tell.’
I for one tend to get my words and phraseology a little mixed, which can be charming and sweet to some, but damn-right annoying to others.
We let our imaginations run riot with scenarios of what we anticipate from life in general and relationships but even then, we can only imagine so much as we never know how things are going to pan out, or how far into the future we’ll have to wait.
Of course we can let our emotions rule us, even the most patient of people has a breaking point….. after all, they too can only be pushed so far.
