flying lessons are drawing to a close…
wait a minute… are they??
or are the lessons just beginning??
we are all in different stages of this flight
called the creative life….
some were already soaring pretty high
a little boost was all they needed
to say good-bye to gravity
burst the bounds of the atmosphere
now gliding effortlessly with no end in sight
others are moving up to join them
but their flight is taxing
there’s a lot of flapping going on
they soar up
then dip back down
it’s an ardous journey
still others are having trouble leaving the nest
they’ve taken a few cautious test flights
but flying is a scary prospect after all
and then there are those
who haven’t yet left the ground
they look up and what do they see?
everyone else is way ahead
gliding, rising, soaring
and never seeming to touch the ground
some of the highest flyers
are dipping back down
they’re coming all the way back
and they’re helping those
who haven’t yet mastered the art of flight
they’re guiding them
and showing them how it’s done
....little by little...
everyone eventually makes it off the ground
some higher than others
but it’s ok
everyone finds their own flight plan
it’s an ongoing work in progress
but it’s a beautiful sight!!
