i am raging inside. i need to run and play and feel the freedom of spring. i need to be with my girlfriends of twenty years. i need to go more crazy than buying a new scented candle at target.
but i am a mother. one who knows the noble quest of a child's good nap and a balanced checkbook. one who takes momentary joy in a tidy and somewhat disinfected home. one whose spirit dances when her children reach out for a hug.
so along with so many others who surround me, i wait. i see a date on the calendar for having fun with friends. i know that the real spring (with all the mud and melt that entails) will someday arrive. but i wonder, like the blogger, Amanda, who creates amazing works of art on "Kind Over Matter" wonders... where are you my wild women ? i know i am not the only one raging, not with anger, but with a feeling of anticipation for a renewal of self. a renewal of spirit. a fresh path to follow. a more clear version of today.
read and be reinspired!
