Just a reminder
Let your children grow up to be farmers.
Let them know what it is like to be free from fluorescent lights and laser pointer meetings. Let them challenge themselves to be forever resourceful and endlessly clever. Let them whistle and sing loud as they like without getting called into an office for “disturbing the workforce.” Let them commute down a winding path with birdsong instead of a freeway’s constant growl. Let them be bold. Let them be romantic. Let them grow up not having to ask another adult for permission to go to the dentist at 2 p.m. on a Thursday. Let them get dirty. Let them kill animals. Let them cry at the beauty of fallow earth they just signed the deed for. Let them bring animals into this world, and realize they don’t care about placenta on their shirt because they no longer care about shirts. Let them wake up during a snowstorm and fight drifts at the barn door instead of traffic. Let them learn what real work is. Let them find happiness in the understanding that success and wealth are not the same thing. Let them skip the fancy wedding. Let them forget four years of unused college. Let them go. Let them go home.
I’m not sure how everyone else finds love so easily, so soon after a marriage/long relationship, etc.
I just can’t get it right.
Tuesday night, i had a first date with Mile. He’s quite the character and i’m really excited to see him again. He doesn’t fit my usual mold, but i’m proud of myself for venturing out and boy am i glad i did.
He’s fuckin hilarious. Gets my sense of humor and finds it funny. He is smart, educated, handsome, athletic, caring and has a great career.
I have a second date tonight. We’ll see where it goes! Wish me luck!
