drinking chardonnay while you do your taxes.
hanging laundry while you cry.
asking strangers for directions, then finding your own way.
building a house of cards in the wind.
tearing some plants out of the garden so the rest have room to grow.
holding up your corner of the big safety net.
working to keep your name in the sand.
growing wings, then giving away all your feathers as gifts to loved ones.
signing all your paintings, not just the masterpieces.
deciding what parts of yourself to sell.
watering houseplants with a thimble.
blowing up your own balloons.
trying to colour within lines of text.
choosing the best answer to an impossible question.
What is "being grown up" to you?
