So here's the deal. You leave a comment to this post answering both of the following questions:
1) If you could be a character in any book (including children's books) you’ve ever read, who would you be and why?
2) If you could transport yourself anywhere instantly, where would you go and why?
As I review the questions I'm requesting you answer, I realize that maybe from the psychology perspective I'm revealing the escapist method of my mindset - Being someone else, and being somewhere else. Not gonna lie - some days it's mighty enticing to think about what it'd be like to be as far away from all of this messy life of mine as possible. I don't understand this experience, this discombobulated attempt at sanity. I don't want the grief anymore. The pain. The awkwardness.
But Lyra came before all that. We reveled in her kicks and sono pictures. She was part of our happiness and hope. There's no need for escaping that experience. And though we seek for that happiness and hope again amidst our pain and confusion, we hold her close in our hearts.
So, on the day of my 100th post, I'll do the random picking thing and announce the winner, along with my own answers (as if that's incentive) and get these sent off in the mail (they are a pair...only one winner):
