Because I only have one life to live, but hundreds of lives I would if I could. I need a place to make peace with that.
Because the insomnia only gets worse when I’m not writing.
Because I will remember the big things, but want to hold the ordinary moments in my heart as well.
Because the quote: “That I could clamber to the frozen moon. And draw the ladder after me.” (Arthur Schopenhauer) is a much more eloquent way of saying “I would lock myself in the bathroom for five hours if I could get even a moment of quiet solitude in the midst of this loud, hectic, life.”
Because sometimes, even I have something to say.
If you’re curious,
If only we lived close, I’d invite you over for tea and madelines, or coffee with fresh banana bread – any excuse to discuss life and writing and mothering and such.
Oh, that would be lovely. And some days (weeks, months), worth a plane ticket. 😉
I’m still going to your first major book signing event at the publisher’s headquarters in NYC….Just need a week’s notice. 🙂 I’m so glad you finally posted this site on your Mobile Home Mistress site. I checked it every Sunday for an update. Was worried something had happened… love love love your writing.
I included your site in my blog roll so I wouldn’t have to google your dang blog address all the time. Yeah for new writer friends!
I tagged you on my “If Santa were real” post. I’m really curious to see what your wishes would be!
