See You Soon

It’s morning somewhere.  Maybe in your town.  Right now.

What is it that causes us to lose our vision?  Can we get it back?

I know there was a time when a strange bird could see where he was flying.  It was a really long time ago.  Now, he’s not too sure.

I see him down in the garden, perched first on one twig, then another, his head turns, here, there.  Occasionally he lights on the fence, and then flits to the ground under the feeder, seeking out a morsel in the snow.  All the time, looking left, right, unsure of where to go, if anywhere at all.

So, the question is not in the unsurety, but in the all-rightness of the unsurety.

Leonardo Dreams of his Flying Machine

yes!

Someone is still dreaming…and hoping to fly.  He knows it will happen, but he can’t see it right now. And that’s OK.

“More than anything else the sensation is one of perfect peace mingled with an excitement that strains every nerve to the utmost, if you can conceive of such a combination.”  ~Wilbur Wright

“If you can remember the dreams of flying and soaring like a bird, or dancing, or singing more perfectly than you ever thought possible, you know no second-hand accounts of such events could ever give you the thrill you felt in the dream.” ~Gayle Delaney

See You Soon

Be well, and at peace,

Phil
