“Be like the bird that, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing that she hath wings.”– Victor Hugo

When I saw this imagine I was drawn to it. What a beautiful message to me in a most unlikley place…under a bridge. Peeling paint, cigarette butts, booze bottles. Kinda like our lives…sometimes we have to go to the unbelly to really see what our truth is. Life looks all put together on one side but it is a cluster f–ck when you go deeper.

Sometimes it is the circumstances that dictate life but most of the time…we clip our own wings…or at least cling to the “nest” for dear life. Gripped with fear or by the messages we have been fed by others or ego that hold us back from flight.

The image was so calming to me. The gentle hands simply releasing the birds to fly. Peace. I am not alone on this journey. God has placed us all here to live life and live it abundantly. He promises a safe landing but not a calm passage. Man oh man…I know that first hand! ¬†Sometimes we joyfully and confidently do that swan dive into life …others need to be “nudged” out like the eagle…Momma pushes the eaglets out of the nest (life) and they find their wings and use them…all under the watchful eye of Momma/ God.

I was to receive this message at just his time in my life! That I know for sure. It spoke to me saying…”ok Kathleen…you have incubated LONG enough now…you have what you need to love again, do that what I was meant to do with what I have been given via all my incredible life experiences.” This blog is one of those things. I want to share my love of photography along with my love of life through sharing my thoughts and experiences.

I want to thank you all for reading my blog and sending words of encouragement. Share it, talk about it. I have set myself free …COME FLY WITH ME!
