I wish...

I'm a little late on my wish, but it's an important one so I'm going to put it out there even if I'm a day behind. This week, Jamie Ridler asks, "How do you wish to Soar?" Well, just as easy as the past wishes have come to me instantly, this one just stuck there. Like Velcro. So I let it sit and I let is brew all day until light became night and I had to sleep on it. But it was still do I wish to soar and why is it so hard for me to answer?  I looked through my photos and I don't even have any shots to represent soaring. This is the photo that spoke to me. This is how I feel. I feel like I'm just sitting on my post, waiting to take off and there is a vast, big ocean out there with no place to land. What if I don't find a safe haven? What if I can't find my way back to the nest? Can I make it? 

I wish my creative art life would soar! In the thrilling, exciting way, without fear. I want to take off! To really take off and just fly. To feel the wind and the sun with a big, free smile on my face. To fly for so long that I own it. So that I can just glide, and go with the flow, and really enjoy it. I want to soar so that my wings just KNOW how to adjust, by second nature, to the unseen currents. I want to soar knowing that my wings and heart are strong enough to take me where I want to go and strong enough to take me back.

I don't think the birds worry about how long the flight will last, will it BE ENOUGH to sustain me, can I make it...they just flip out those wings and take off!

I wish to stretch my creative wings and soar above
spreading inspiration and love.
People will say...
Look up!
There she is!
And smile.
