Here I am

Here I am

August 28, 2007

*****

Over at Parenting I have a post up in a similar vein, about trying to merge the life imagined with the life we find ourself living.

I will never be cellulite, wrinkle, or grey hair free.

I will never backpack around Europe staying in hostels and trying to eat off of only $2 a day, collecting stamps in my passport the way other people collect Precious Moments figurines. Because in my spoiled old age I require the luxury of clean linens and having a bathroom in my room.

I will never fall in love for the first time again.

    I honestly think this is the best post I’ve ever read by you. And, believe me, I’ve read A LOT OF THEM! It was simply beautiful and I could so identify with those feelings - been having a lot of them myself lately. What great writing!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve pretty much accepted the fact that I’m only going to get grayer and wrinklier. And I can’t imagine loving anyone other than my husband. But it would be nice to still be young enough to do the whole “Europe with a backpack and a rail pass” thing. Great writing!
