This is the second installment of my personal journey, the first being Like Water. Join me as I make my journey on this trip we call life. Some of us "get it" early in life, and some of us have to learn the hard way. I've taken the latter. However, in The Magic Hour, I've begun to wake up and see that I have been engaging in some magical thinking by assuming that life is going to just drop my dreams into my lap, hoping against hope that my prayers will bring a change to my mother and my life when in reality, the person who needs to change is me. I am to learn this by living through harrowing hidden experiences with my family. Pushed to the limit, what decisions will I make? How will I turn things around? The lessons that I've learned as a child, which I thought were a bit archaic and cruel, will serve me well.
