Distant Goals

Do you have any of those things where
You sort of see it as a ‘goal’
But you’re not prioritizing it,
Not actually even actively pursing it
Remotely
(meaning ‘at all’, not Covid type of Remotely)
But you still think about that thing and go,
“Ah yes, I will do that,
And when I do
It will be so great.”
Well I have one;
Someday
I would like to have a complete wardrobe
Of only clothes that I have made myself.
Yes like on a sewing machine.
So gradually,
I imagine myself beginning to sew things.
A shirt here
Overalls there
Here a sock
There a sock
Everywhere a sock sock
Just kidding… that’s my mom’s area of expertise
But you feel me.
I think about it sometimes,
And I wonder if other people have such distant goals
As I?
