The Reluctant Mermaid

one woman unwilling to swim in the same direction as the others


Who is this person?

Who is this person who plans retreats, offers creative services for best friends weddings, gets a new JOB for pete's sake!
Who is this person who stays up late cleaning floors, packing lunches, working 2 jobs?
Who is this person who is planning an inter-coastal birds nest/rock swap with a gypsy mermaid?
Who misses her kids during the day but can get her fill every weekend?
Who feels like her head will explode because there is NOT ENOUGH TIME TO CREATE!
Who has wicked split ends and no appetite for a haircut?
Who drives around with the radio off just to have the quiet space to hear the music of her own mind?
Who wants to paint? sew? listen to endless This American Life podcasts, build a fence, stack the woodpile, drive by the harbor on my way to work and be able to stop for once to see the water sparkle and the sailboats bob in the waves or look across the harbor to World's End and remind myself to go for a walk there the next chance I get.

Do you recognize this person
