Let it fly

13 Comments 15 May 2010

I must say that I thought it would be a huge and fantastic relief to finally put this thing, this blog, this website, this idea…this beast of burden that I have been thinking about, talking about, asking for advice about for months-behind me.  Well, just so you know, I don’t feel any less stressed about it, but I am glad to just let it fly.  That is what it feels like, like I’ve been building this plane, figuring out how to put on the wings, adding a propeller, sticking some wheels on, you know, putting all the pieces together…and the pieces aren’t really what I love.

I love to fly.  I love to write.  I love to put one word in front of the other and tell stories.  I love to tell people about life as I have known it and as I hope it will be, about the places where it has gaps and the places where it is overflowing.  I just needed a contraption to get me up in the air, to put me out there, to give me wings and this is it…for now.  This little blog, this little website…it is my wings and they are very wobbly and very unsure.

So much effort has been focused on getting this thing off the ground that I forgot how frightening it would be to actually be out here, up in the air.  The constant reality of gravity, a.k.a failure, pulling at me and reminding me that with one tilt of the wing and I could be plummeting towards my demise.  But, then again, I hate sitting on the ground and watching others fly.  I think we were all meant to fly.

We may be some badass jet plane or some silly kite, but we were all meant to do and be something and often times life, its twists and turns, and even its good things can distract us from taking flight.  We fail to ever let it fly because we forget that we have wings.  So, I am up here and it is scary, but it is a whole lot better than not ever flying at all.

Thanks for all of the encouragement.  You all know who you are.  You have each made my wings sturdier, stronger and given me courage to take flight. Know that I want nothing more than to do the same with and for you.  Let me know what you need, how can I help you find your wings (and no, I don’t mean like in Beaches!) stop being corny!  I really mean it.  If I can help you figure out what you need to get your little plane off the ground – I’ll help you learn what kind of plane you are and how to – let it fly!

    Jorga, I love the way you write…pure pleasure to read! The metaphor of the plane–putting the pieces together, but it isn’t the pieces that you love–wings that feel wobbly–scary flying, but worse to sit on the ground and watch others fly–I was chuckling as I read because I so relate!

    I’m an EMPOWERer too…passionate about people “coming into their own!”

    Keep it comin! I’ll be here regularly!

    Just like a previous comment, I love the song “Defying Gravity” from Wicked. . .it makes me cry, and it touches something deep inside of me b/c I too want to defy gravity.
    Love you blog and your thoughts. . .keep at it. . .very inspiring. . .it feels good to be back “in touch” w/ you again. 🙂

things to make you wonder~

“I am a frayed and nibbled survivor in a fallen world, and I am getting along. I am aging and eaten and have done my share of eating too. I am not washed and beautiful, in control of a shining world in which everything fits, but instead am wondering awed about on a splintered wreck I've come to care for, whose gnawed trees breathe a delicate air, whose bloodied and scarred creatures are my dearest companions, and whose beauty bats and shines not in its imperfections but overwhelmingly in spite of them...” Annie Dillard
