My cape got stuck in the dryer today and ripped in half. This almost comes as a comfort on a day I am feeling overwhelmingly tired. Even a superhero needs time for herself once in awhile and she can’t possibly take a moment when she is always feeling so responsible for the rest of the world. I remember going to my nephews christening a few months ago. I can still remember the woman who stood at the front of the church and spoke the wisest words I had ever heard. She said, take the next few minutes to be here and only here. Come into this space. Turn off your phone and let the rest of the world take care of itself for the next half hour. I promise it will survive without your watch. And guess what? It did. There comes a time when you must step away from others lives and let them walk in their shoes alone. Today is that day. I will sit here and relax as I hang out in mine.This is my time to step away. I wish I didn’t wait so long.
