thoughts in route

Sep 11, 2007 | Life in Progress

the sky appears so expansive as i sit here next to it, in this window seat, in route to ohio. the Be Good Tanyas are humming their folk melodies in my ear and the landscape of this sky feels wild and free and wide and possible, much like how the horizon of my life feels right now, at this very moment of dashing peace. i feel hopeful sitting next to these puffy clouds. they have me wanting the most of this moment, and of my life. i feel refreshingly full, like an experience is waiting for me to give in to its wholeness. it feels really good, i must say, this moment of being. not analyzing. not over thinking. not wanting. instead, just resting with the thought of where i’m going. the journey is carrying me through, and now here i sit, just a window away from a whole new set of possibility.

sometimes, i feel like a hopeless romantic when it comes to life and all that awaits me and the ones i love. this part of the journey, in this moment, on this flight, in this window seat, in this heart, feels like i am playing a real live part in the title of the book for which i’m flying to ohio in the first place: Taking Flight. yes, yes i am.

sunday, sept 9, somewhere over Illinois, 2:30pm-ish

Sending much love,

    Beautiful photo – and I would much rather be in the moment celebrating the miracle of being above the clouds, rather than to take it for granted. All the best for all the book business ahead. Enjoy!

    yay! i’m so psyched for you! thanks for being a romantic! the definition we read at our wedding: #7 is my fave:…art that subordinates form to content, encourages freedom of treatment, emphasizes imagination, emotion, and introspection, and often celebrates nature, the ordinary person, and freedom of the spirit

    There is nothing wrong with being a hopeless roamntic, it takes a beautiful heart to see things in such a sweet and delightful way. It makes me feel less silly for dreaming and wishing and hoping to, lol…and that is a good thing!
