I don't think any of my family understand this. They are pragmatic, nesting, looking at responsibilities, planning for the future. Doing what they do. What I always did.
There is only one who keeps me tethered these days. I hope against hope he will just take a leap of faith. But I know it is unrealistic for me to think this. He comes from a family of hard workers, planners for the future. Retirement. Spontaneity or abrupt changes of direction are not going to happen.
Through out my life I always said, "I'm going to run away". I'm sure it caused different feelings with everyone. I didn't say it for drama or affect or to hurt anyone. It was simply how I felt.
I didn't run away and here I am. Still with the itchy feet and gypsy soul.
