I saw a Louise Bourgeois show with a good friend a little over a year ago at the Guggenheim Museum. I keep thinking of this series of Drawings and Paintings. I do feel so chained to my house. The family, everything. I feel so connected to these paintings and the things Louise has said about them, but remember how my friend and I thought that she must have been a horror of a mother, and felt bad for her children.
I have been dreaming of travel, and just the freedom of leaving this space and my family and just not having to be concerned with all this day to day stuff. Now how do I convince myself that I deserve to break away? What do I say when my husband and kids want to come along? And what do I want to do in this fantasy time anyway?
