Journal Entry 6

In my wildest dreams, I never thought we’d be here. I don’t know what I thought this moment would look like or if I thought about it at all.

I can trace the trajectory of my life over the past year, but I can’t account for much of what has been happening outside my familial nucleus.

I wish I could, as Henry David Thoreau suggested, sit on the sidelines while this century passes me by but that is not possible. When you have a child, when you have a dog in the race, the choice to participate has been made for you.
