Dear Mom –

I feel like I have been standing at a fork in the road for a while now. I have big decisions to make, but I continue to doubt myself. And why should I doubt myself? I know that I am talented and smart and all those things that count. I have this pressing feeling that time is running out. I fear the consequences of standing still. Should I wait for that moment of incandescent clarity or should I just close my eyes and jump? I wish you were here – I could really use your guidance right now. I miss you.

Love Susan
