“For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.” ~Leonardo Da Vinci
I went to my first airshow yesterday. The daring do of those pilots just blew me away. The wind helped, but the pilots definitely were amazing. I also got to see the Snowbirds in action, but those photos are on my phone. Yes, I forgot the back-up batteries. Oops. Live and learn.
So anyway, being there, watching those magnificent men -and women- in their flying machines got me thinking: I have been playing small in terms of chasing my passions. It’s as if I’ve been tamping down my fire. Anyone else ever feel that way? If so, what did that bring you to? I’d love to hear your stories and inspirations.
I have to ask myself what lights me up. More importantly, how do I make that into a bigger part (or all of) what I’m doing on a daily basis?
Well, here’s what I want: I want to go out into the world and meet good people. I want dinners where strangers become friends -and dinner goes until breakfast. I want to hear people telling their stories, and tell some of my own. I want to eat amazing food, and see amazing places that take my breath away. I also want to be surrounded by cozy beauty, read good books, have real friends, and find love.
That’s the adventure I choose. I have no idea where that’ll take me, but it sounds like a great way to live my life.
