Dear LJIdol friends and Participants,
One day I woke up earlyin the morn and stared at a painting across the wall. Two beautiful steads galloping in the meadow. I stared at it for a long time. They were majestic, overpowering and .... free. I was mesmerised. I had seen that picture for the last two years and has always taken it for granted. But, something about it was different tonight. It mocked me.
It mocked me out of my sedate existence. It mocked for the roads not taken, It mocked me for the passions I had locked up in my Pandora's box. And it mocked me for the thing I missed most. My freedom.
I was not locked in chains. I don't have an abusive husband. I can't complain about an unhappy marriage. But I was in chains. I felt the noose chocking me, tightening at my thoats making me gasp for breath. I stumbled across to the washroom and splashed some icy cold water on my face. Slowly, I focused on the wide expanse of mirror in front of me. An old lady stared sadly at me. Her smile gentle, her eyes begging me to make peace with myself. Accept the life I was supposed to lead. That of a Wife and a Mother.
To my horror, she spilt into two. One ran after the kids, shouting and screaming. I could feel her palpitations, the frustrations at the debris of life that needed to be cleared while the other part started gathering ingredients to be cooked before a very tired DH returend from work. A scene, normal to everyone.
But then I saw her.....
A younger, prouder version of the old day standing in the middle of the room -grinning at me. I tentatively smiled at her, feeling that I should somehow know her but could not recall. She walks up to me and mouthed, 'I am the Woman in you."
So dear LJidol Members, I am taking up this challenge to prove that the writer in me is still alive.I am a Mother, a Wife, a Reviewer and a Blogger. Now I need to find the Writer in me. Thanks for this oppurtunity. Let the ride begin. All the best to each and everyone of you participating in this.
