Random Thought for April 20, 2012

Wings & Flight

Today I walked outside and I felt what has become a very familiar and welcomed feeling. I felt my wings spread open, ready for flight.

The spring sun on my face and my flight instructor (my wonderful husband) walking beside me.   A kiss good-bye from him, the radio turned up, appropriately playing ‘Fly with Me’ and I took off for my day, with a smile.

It wasn’t that long ago that being able to fly was foreign to me. I did not realize I had wings, let alone understand that they were only broken.  Over the last few years they have most definitely grown and healed.  What was broken grows back stronger.  So today I fly.  No longer the blackbird with a broken wing, no longer the songbird afraid to sing. Today I enjoy my life;  Wings open wide.

What makes you fly?



I have always said that my poetry and short stories write themselves, I'm just the hand that holds the pen. Several of my poems have been published in local publications and in the 2011 World Poetry Movement book 'Stars in our Hearts'. Please enjoy the words, but do not steal them. I enjoy living and what life brings my way. My day job, I'm a geekgirl, a programmer. Coding is like using clues to solve a mystery to me. But, my happiness outside of the day job involves, cooking, baking, knitting, crocheting, writing, hiking, primitive skills. Yup, I come home and unplug. So there are many sides of me here. Enjoy.

  1. Life, my love, is a molting process. We must shed the old to bring in the new. Every day is a new beginning, every moment, a blessing.
