Today as  I crossed the bridge to go to the Farmer’s Market, a flotilla of white clouds like an armada of tall ships in the sky kept me company. When the clouds pile up like that, I feel like the earth is a very tiny gondola just waiting to cast off into dreamtime. I think we could be free to go sightseeing in the universe if we only let go of the guide lines that hold us to our schedules and very important duties, titles, jobs. I would love to go sailing into the land of N.C. Wyeth and Wind in the Willows and A Child’s Garden of Verses. To travel back in time to my imaginary friends and storybook lands where the usual laws of nature don’t apply. It’s still there somewhere behind those clouds…I can almost see it, almost reach it, almost let go of my driver’s license, dry cleaning tickets, grocery list, property tax, shoes to be repaired, library books to be returned, dentist appointments, jury duty–almost. I’m just happy to know it’s there even if I can’t gain admittance as easily as I used to.

    I think you’re way more hip than you portray..I’m not even hip enough to come up with a cool list of WHAT I’m not hip enough to do… 😉
