I just found out that not only does Yale have a summer writing workshop, but so does Harvard.

Okay, so it's obvious that I can't afford this. It's more obvious that I wouldn't get accepted even if I did apply. Also, I would have to spend a full month away from my kids.

But besides all this reality -- God, I really want to go. I mean ... I didn't go to college right out of high school. I never did that whole thing. And I keep thinking -- for one month, one precious month out of my life, I could go somewhere exciting, and do something wonderful, and be someone else. And oh, the things I would see, and the stuff I could do, and the writing that would come from it all.

So, I think I am going to apply. Just to say I did it.

How insane am I?
