That Magic Moment
Mother's Day seems an eternity. Between writing, querying, life, kids, and all that other crap, I barely know which end is up.
And then it all comes into focus today. What I'm doing, or trying to do. And who I'm doing it for.
No, not the last super delegate telling me who's they're going to vote for.
I have a great phone conversation with a producer. I wasn't PJ the Mommy, I was PJ the writer of that great Showtime movie. We connected. And for twenty minutes I was firing on all cylinders, pitching, ducking and weaving, giving it my best shot, and them giving it right back to me in a positive way.
And the best part of it, the kids were home. All three of them, a rare treat, with boyfriends in tow, a rowdy group, and they started cooking diner. I come out of the office and they can tell by the way I'm dancing that it was a good phone gab. No, not just good, it was fantastic. And even if nothing comes of it, for that time, my time, it felt wonderful. It felt normal. It felt like this is what it's supposed to be.
