Life x 2, life ÷ 2

Like the Scottish crofters, I lead two lives. One here, one elsewhere. One professional, useful, interesting job, and one amateur-farmer. It seems to suit my Gemini mind and mostly life x 2 is good. Carpe diem, twice over.

But sometimes, just sometimes, I wish I was in the other life, watching Paris sparkle from the top floor of the Pompidou, walking in the Jardin des Tuileries, or laughing at the Théâtre de la Madeleine.

Those sometimes, life ÷ 2 splits my heart.

And that’s painful.
