You know how sometimes you are daydreaming and you think of all those things you always wanted to do and never got the chance?
I think we should pay more attention to those day dreams and try harder to make them happen.
My whole life, since I was a small child, I have wished and dreamed for so many things, and these things changed as I grew older, well most of them did. I think sometimes things seem so mysterious and magical then, you get older and wiser, and your mortality is staring you in the face. At these times, those magical things are a little less magical… and maybe even a little bit scary.
Like walking on a tightrope… when I was a child I loved watching the acrobats walk the tightrope… balancing with only their own body as a safety line.With nothing between them and the plummet to the earth, nothing but air. Then, that was something i wanted to do……. now? No! Heck, I can barely keep my checkbook balanced..lol
Another of those magical things was to skydive, To jump form an airplane of your own free will….. and TO FLY!!! Oh my gosh, how many time did I dream of flying? soaring above the earth and watching all the tiny people from above. Magical! But now that I am older and have responsibilities, I realize that I am not that brave… I couldn’t jump.. I couldn’t take the chance that the parachute doesn’t open. I have too much to live for and the adrenaline rush wouldn’t be worth it. Instead, I will get my rush from doing 60 in a 55 mile per hour zone. lol
But as these dreams have faded into a memory, One has stayed with me, One that is maybe not QUITE as scary. But still ohh so magical. I have always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon. As we settle into our lives and we let all the small things get in the way of our dreams, and that is what this piece is about. Its about rising above all those little things to ride above the earth in that magical balloon. The Time is Now!
