She's comin' around the corner, here she comes...

This morning, I'm off on the train to San Diego. Looking forward to seeing my dear friend, looking forward to hanging out with her, looking forward to the quiet time on the way.

What I'm perplexed by is my increasing reluctance to stepping away from the family - I've noticed more and more that I'm apprehensive when faced with opportunities to do independent activities. Not so much with the teaching, but about going away, leaving them behind to do something on my own. Hard to put into words what bothers me...worry that something will go wrong...concern that the children will tie my husband up and cause untold havoc in our neighborhood...but mostly, really, subtle, simmering fear. Manageable, now. I wonder if it will be manageable when I'm 50.

Should I stay home? Should I cancel?

Let me think. Let me listen to the music of my home.

No, I'm off. Train leaves at 10:30! See you soon!

The fear that everything will go well and you're not needed?

Have a great time, Adriana.

Wow, I know that feeling so well. For me, I use it to hold me back. As I don't have young children anymore I feel it about the cats. When I moved from Buffalo to Philadelphia I "feared" the move from the cats' point of view rather than seeing that it was I who was holding myself back. Of course, sometimes it is good to hold me back - safe and careful. But more often than not, it is connected to my feeling out of confidence.

But, that's just me!

I hope you have a fulfilling trip. You deserve it!

Hmmmm, me wonders if she is ever coming home?

Maybe being “free” was too much, eh?

Oh thanks to everyone for your sweet notes...I'm here, I've been waiting for a time to write, never seeming to find that right moment.

More in a post...
