Taking Flight


"I could run away but you would always stay, right by my side

Right by my side

Yes, I need you

Every step of the way..."

One of my favorite places to be is in a plane; I don't know what it is about being in a plane that makes me feel so comfortable, so safe, this coming from a guy who's afraid of heights (juxtaposition is funny).

Every once in a while, I mosey out to our airport and I sit and watch planes touch down and take off, I mean I've literally sat in my car for hours, watching planes. The funny thing is when I'm traveling all over the place, like I've been blessed to do, I find myself looking back down at the earth, wondering where all those people are scurrying off to.

There are certain people whom I wish I could take on a trip, certain people whom I'd love to see their face(s) light up, the first time they see the Eiffel Tower, the first time they step foot in Central Park, see The Eye of London from the plane, or even pass over the Grand Canyon.

Who would have thought that this point in my life, I'd still be kid, I'd still be seeking adventure. Most of my childhood friends have been married, divorced, had kids, dogs, houses, cars, and grandkids, in some cases.

I was recently told, "We often want what we don't have (to some degree) but those things might not always be what they seem and IF things were different, things would be different."

The reality is seeing the waves and picturing the waves are perhaps one in the same... the beach is where you make it so learn to enjoy the sand and sun from wherever you place your head.

"Ladies and gentlemen, this is your Captain speaking..."
