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.

  3. Dag Petra,Het klinkt eigenlijk best logisch ‘aanbieden als een kind er om vraagt’. Soms verbaas ik me er over dat niet alle onderwijs instituten volgens deze methode werken. Waarom wordt zo krampachtig vastgehouden aan eindtermen? Mooi aan jouw reactie is dat er dus mensen zijn die ondanks alle regels ‘iets’ ontdekken in de ander en hen weten te motiveren om hun talenten te onderkennen, ontwikkelen en in te zetten! Dank je wel.
