Take Flight

Our lives are beautifully diverse.  We bustle from here to there.  We experience life from different vantage points.  Let your wings unfurl so you can soar to new heights.  Reach for a goal and grasp it tightly.  You have the power in yourself to achieve anything you dream!wpid-IMG_55117609885691.jpeg Photo courtesy Nathan Rathjen-all rights reserved

Waves

Soul Experiences

The waves rolled ever on and on.  I would crest one just to tumble down to the next.  Up and down.  Wave after wave.  At the pinnacle of each wave, for a moment, you could see forever.  The vista was more waves, stunning but immense.  Beautiful, yet overwhelming in my own insignificance.  I would be seasick if not for the reality of being on dry land.

My mind’s eye shifts back to the here and now, not my imagination.  The waves turn golden from their crystal blue.  My boat, reengineers itself back to my vehicle.  The smell of sea water vanishes replaced by a clean dusty fragrance.  The waves become soil and yet, roll ever on and on. 

As I drive this highway in the northeast corner of Nebraska, I can see for miles.  The hills rise up inviting you to travel on to see what is over the next rise.  It is like…

Twists and turns

Rumbling on and on

Carving out a path

Continuing for eons

Splashing, slithering

Coursing over rocks

Under the sun

In the moonlight

Ever changing

We try to stop it

We fail, again and again

Powerful, yet gracious

Slowly eroding where it chooses

All that it requests from us…

Respect

‘Cuz I’m Weird Like That

No! I am standing in rebellion! My fists are balled at my sides and I might even stomp my feet! I love change but this is too soon!  I don’t want winter to be over.

I know, I know, everyone is sick and tired of the cold, the snow and the basically depressing weather outside their doors. But hear me out…When those first light flakes fall to the earth in an icy dance, I feel peace.  An all-encompassing quiet in my heart that makes me smile.

Think of your favorite childhood toy.   Think of how it felt in your hands, not your hands of adulthood but your tiny, uncoordinated child sized fingers.  Is it soft?  Does it make noise?  Maybe it was an item that fit perfectly in your little palm.  Think of the way you felt when you had your favorite toy…

That joyous, peaceful, “I’m in my own world” feeling is exactly how I feel when it snows.

Goodbye winter, I will miss you.
