BLURB

I find myself rarely having time for myself and dreaming of the days when I was the only thing I needed to care for. Between taking the children to their daily activities and caring for my absent work-obsessed husband, I long for that extra time to be truly with myself, by myself. Maybe I will leave them all and finally finish that yoga-teacher training I started a couple years ago and escape to Bali. Or perhaps I’ll call that man I met at the bar who plays in that jazz group… I’m sure he could show me some fun. But I always get called back into my life, I suppose one cannot daydream for too long without neglecting the things that should really matter. I still cant help that in the midst of the most mind-numbing conversations, I find my eyes losing focus and looking past someone, immediately and unashamedly pulling me into my dream world, where even the most vigorous hand waving and ‘helloooo, are you there?’ could not easily bring me back.
