Why does scuba diving invoke Disney and Dali for me? Maybe because it all seems a little unreal when you are under there. And Disney and Dali are the Kings of making the unreal real and real unreal. And I love them both.

Day 16, June 2016, #BornWithWings Writing Challenge - Fortune Cookie Wisdom

Fortune Cookie Wisdom. I've never quite believed in pure luck. I believe in serendipity, a pleasant surprise. I believe in numbers. I believe we all are given certain talents that we choose to use or not. And I believe in hard work. Repetition and the 10,000 hour theory.

So this fortune is on the money.

Day 15, June 2016, #BornWithWings Writing Challenge - Sunsets

Something from before but is still true. Paradise Ridge Winery Sunset, Santa Rosa, Wed night. You know why sunsets are awesome? They are awesome because they simply show up
Every day
They are there
They are there for you
They are there for everyone
They speak to our eyes
They say the three little words every person wants to hear
They say
I've. Got. This.

Day 14, June 2016, #BornWithWingsWriting Challenge - Bats

The sun has set and it is now dusk. A light blue dusts the sky against the dark shadows of the 250 year old oak and 200 year old Monterey Pine in my yard. I'm 7,000 steps in walking around the pool and I decide to leap into the oversized bean bag/love sac for a minute to watch the bats. They come out every night at this time. I love watching them.

Day 10, June 2016, 30-day #‎bornwithwings‬ writing challenge. Inspired by this excerpt of a poem by Rumi: "You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don't. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly."


The quiet.
