Wanderlust

Tonight the walls are too confining. My skin itches to feel the balm of a summer night and not the pinpricks of an air conditioned chill. My legs want to stretch out under the dashboard of my car, right foot meeting accelerator, and drive under the moon. Wanderlust seems to creep in right in those seasons when it is the most impossible- escape the most improbable. But I acknowledge it anyway, ticking off in my mind all of the places I want to see.

And to ease the restlessness, I will tell myself that it’s ok to dream. It’s right to experience longing for escape when motherhood can leave us feeling so trapped. So tapped out. And I will grab a travel narrative off of the shelf, open the windows, and pray that until my mind lets go and surrenders to sleep that my babies will dream their dreams. Because I need to dream mine too.

  1. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your blog. You have some really great articles and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an e-mail if interested. Thank you!

  2. bonjour (C’est clairement un titre de fond de portefeuille qui ne bougera quasiment pas en cas de secousse financière ; c’est, je pense, sa grande (et seule) qualité.) Et maintenant (le 5.12.2012) il peut encore bouger beaucoup? Et est ‘il un peu plus sexy? Merci

  3. Obrigado Diogo,É verdade, aquela nossa primeira troca de ideias foi muito ligeira. Mas concordei contigo na altura e continuo a concordar, é realmente algo que deixa a desejar, mas também me parece que é o única falhar que se pode apontar legitimamente ao filme. Não sou um fã devoto dos Coen, mas também não entraria no top 5 dos meus favoritos deles.Cumps.

  4. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having a hard time locating it but, I would like to send you an e-mail. I just don’t see what the big deal could be. If I am ever in trouble I will give you a ring. I like this very much!

  5. Just saw a puff piece about the youngest Obama turning 11. I wish someone at a press conference would congratulate Obama on his daughter’s birthday and then ask if he’s aware Israel just seized an 11-year-old. And ask Obama how he thinks an 11-year-old will hold up under Israeli interrogation.Israel is threatened by theater groups and fifth-graders.

  6. 下半旗方面,問題在於,蘭桂坊人踩人慘劇、嘉利大廈大火、沙士299 人死亡、屯門公路九巴墮橋、菲律賓人質事件,這些事件你是否認為值得下半旗?我認為這些造成人命嚴重傷亡的無論是意外還是天災還是人禍,都應該下半旗。偏激點說,那面旗比不上任何一條人命。那麼,若值得下半旗,為何以前那些冷漠官員不下半旗,以後就永遠不能下半旗?中間不能破例?梁振英真正居心,我不想去猜測,搞政治者,所有舉動都變成政治,猜測沒有意義。至於李剛,真不知道葫蘆賣什麼藥。以往老一輩中共港澳工作者,均非常低調,王光亞領導下的就是不一樣。傻瓜一群。

  7. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
    are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers
    and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a
    good platform.
