This morning, as I gazed up at the clear skies after the swim, a sudden desire stirred within me—a desire to soar through the sky, weightless and free. After months of hazy skies and obscured horizons, the sight of the sun rising early and painting the sky with hues of blue ignited a longing within me.

The Allure of the Sky

The sky looked exceptionally inviting today, its vast expanse stretching out endlessly, beckoning me to explore its boundless beauty. I found myself yearning to experience the sensation of gliding through the air, to feel the wind beneath my wings as I navigate the heavens above.

A Novel Experience

While I've never had the opportunity to fly a glider or pilot a plane, the allure of the sky has fascinated me since becoming an adult. The closest I've come to experiencing the thrill of flight was many moons ago when I embarked on a skydiving adventure in New Jersey. The memory of that exhilarating plunge into the unknown still lingers, igniting a desire for new airborne adventures.

Exploring New Desires

Sometimes, amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life, it's easy to dismiss fleeting desires as whimsical fantasies. However, there's something to be said about paying attention to these yearnings, for they hold the potential to lead us down uncharted paths of exploration and discovery. Life is about following our desires, embracing new experiences, and delving into the depths of our curiosity.

A Perfect Morning

As I pondered the possibility of learning to glide, a perfect morning unfolded before me—a refreshing swim followed by the exhilarating sensation of gliding through the skies. It's moments like these that remind me of the beauty of dreaming and wishing, of envisioning a life filled with endless possibilities and boundless joy.

As I reflect on this morning's longing for the skies, I'm filled with gratitude for the gift of life and the endless opportunities it presents. Whether it's swimming in the morning sun or gliding through the boundless sky, each experience is a reminder of the beauty and wonder that surrounds us.
