I am vacillating between extremes at the prospect of the imminent transition… 
Sometimes happy that I will be sprouting wings and be flying out into my world… 
Sometimes sad that I have to leave the unconditionally warm and loving nest behind. 
But whatever I feel, beneath it all I know that nothing is going to be the same, the change is imperative… 
It is not about better or worse, but just a change, a difference in all our lives, especially mine. It’s time to venture out into the big world alone…

This is a picture that perfectly defines me right now… 
The land looks like the sea, endless, vast, formidable yet inviting… 
And the sky, with the shadows and the hidden rays playing next each other, each more vivid and real because of the other. The clouds and the sun. They do co-exist. They can.
The imagination stretches as far as your eyes can see and even further, into the infinite… And like a soul waiting for the journey to begin.

When the wind is in my face,
I feel I have wings
That lift me in the breeze
And I’m flying!
With my hair blowing behind,
I travel over worlds, smiling.
And then the wind slows,
And I land back on Earth
Not let down, but held
With promise to fly again.

Preparing, Waiting and Anticipating……..
N.B. Conflicted yet never been more clear. G.

    I know how you feel :). Changes are inevitable, they excite you and scare you.

    That's like it! No matter how you fall, just bounce back..if we can't control our fall, let's control our ability to re-achieve things..and in your post, ability to fly again…
