A long-standing issue in my life is just an idea, specifically that, once one has made a decision, or chosen a path, then all other paths become blocked off. Along with being a sure recipe for commitment phobia, this idea keeps me in constant search for whichever path might be one which will allow me to also chose other paths. Does that make any sense at all? Perhaps not.
The deal now is that, soon I will have a period of total break from my current reality, communitas time, where I will transition into motherhood. And then, after that transition, I will be able to go on to do, well, anything I'd like really. But what would I like? I realize that I have lots of time to ponder this, but also that the more I dream now, the more I can do to make it all a reality over the next year or so.
If it were you, with a year of transition, what would you want to transition to? And for that matter, what would you do during the year? The wilder, the better. As I hear your dreams, I will also be crystallizing my own possibilities, to be shared when they're a little more fully-formed.
