Thanks to Mama, Ph.D. co-editor Caroline Grant for sending me this essay from Skirt! Magazine (I finally read it, Caroline!).  The story of a couple chasing an escape fantasy and learning to let go of it for an unexpected (and it seems better) reality, it’s so relevant to my last post about ideal versus real.

It bring to mind for me the Joseph Campbell quote:

“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.”
