I can't wait to go fishing. It's time to be on the river and be hypnotized by the small waves and the constant focus on what is happening below the surface. And at the same time, the insignificance of it all. What would it be like to not be a teacher, to have less security of employment. To have less money and more freedom. Or more money and less time to breathe. I often wonder about these things. I try to hold it all loosely, but that isn't something that our society values. Often I want to disappear with my family and ignore society. Act like monks. It sounds like it might be the best thing possible for our kids. Our relationships. Our lives. Maybe Birchdale one day.
