an early long weekend
a couple of hours drive
and miles away
it’s time to have a
light show/jump on the beds/stay up late
kind of end to the day
tonight we fly.
“it is not the jumps you made in your life,
but mostly the jumps you haven’t made that are the real source of regrets in your life.”
with the absence of so many humans
the animals have reclaimed their territory
and even branched out to try things that might be new
when i saw this goose standing full of pride and bravado on top of the bridge
all i could think of was that scene from ‘titanic’ when jack said to rose:
“i’m the king of the world!”
and he believed that for a little while.
“the higher we soar the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly”
– friedrich nietzsche
these flamingos are playing on both sides of the fence
i wonder if they know they can fly.
“fences are made for those who cannot fly. ”
flying high at our class circus.
“as one, they leap, laughing,
and that is where we leave them –
mouths open, arms spread wide,
fingers splayed to take in the whole world,
bodies flying high in defiance of gravity,
as if they will never fall.”
– libba bray
this crew has built their own airplane.
they are flying to australia.
it will take them “70 miles long” to get there.
i have no doubt they will arrive safely and on time.
“to invent an airplane is nothing. to build one is something. but to fly is everything.
