The medicine of writing (1)
After half a day at my volunteer job, a daily dose of mom business and the usual annoyances, I decided to take a break!
Today I change my clothes and pack my bag! I am leaving for a relaxing time.
While taking a seat at the table, my boyfriend hands me a cup of tea and bows down for a farewell kiss. After seeing him leave my sight, I open up the computer and hit the first button. Soon, I am transported into a different world.
Suddenly I don’t look like a 34 year old, tired, mom of two. I don’t wear my usual sneakers, hoodies, or shawls. I am someone completely different. Every ounce of fatigue has disappeared out of this body, that seems to move on its own.
I walk down this path that feels so different from my own, I experience things I can only dream of, and know stuff that I didn’t think could ever be in my mind.
This world, although not perfect, is full of emotions. At every bend a new adventure seems to start. And I feel liberated.
Sometimes the road is not as easy as it could be, it can be frustrating when I lose my way. But in the end, for just a little while, I don’t have to be myself.
But then the time comes, that I need to return. No clicking my heels, no jump in a painting, just the return to hard reality. I close the computer and leave my writing behind!
