Seven lifetimes

I need to have at least seven lifetimes to accomplish everything I'd like. In one lifetime, I would be an artist. I would have a studio in a small town where I would paint and draw and create. In another, I'd be a photojournalist living in the remote west coast and travelling the word on assignment only to come back to rainforest to recharge. I'd be a photographer. I would be a midwife and a doula. I would be a gallery owner in Montreal. I would be a mother...and nothing else -unfragmented by career and creative pursuits. I would be a travel writer single and fancifree.

But I only have one lifetime and so I'm exhausting myself to pack it all in...
