Moving Back Home - Page 2
This is what I want to spend my energy concerned with. I want to make the world a better place, I want to be able to focus my efforts toward parenting my daughter (she is past care giving and now requires active parenting) and being a creative professional in order to do the first two things more and better. This is the circle of life I am interested in pursuing- but like Cervantes complained- too often we are concerned with the pursuit of bread to be poetic? I have resigned myself to trying and doing everything to the point of regular exhaustion, working, writing, parenting...such is the life of a single mom who won't settle.
Now that I have complained, I want to balance it with how grateful I am that we have a place to live where the homeowners love us and tolerate us and the junk we have invaded their hoarders-like home with, plus our two dogs. In 3 short months we will be gone, living in Los Angeles where we will start fresh in creating a family and fending for ourselves. Meanwhile I am writing and tending the 4 irons in the fire of my career. The pitch meetings and gigs are coming, I don't have time and couldn't do it without the help from my parents. I just didn't think it would look like this. It will make sense from the rear view mirror. I will write about it.
