  • It's not so much where I am, where I've travelled. It's more that I am far away enough.

    It's not that there is anything wrong with were I live. It's just that I am rarely really there. Not really. I'm at work, taking care of everything, planning, shopping, cleaning. Caring for friends and family. Solving things.

    Not like now. I'm somewhere far away, which means I'm right here. My son is pushing his stroller. I shout STOP! to him, and throw myself to the ground, in front of the stroller.

    - It's a ladybug!
