When I Am Big

Mountain biking trail – Penticton, Okanogan, B.C. Canada

Yesterday I came home from a short visit abroad. While traveling the depth and breadth of ‎North America, I could not help but be impressed by the enormous sizes: the spaces, trees, ‎mountains, people and plate portions. Does “Super Size Me” ring a bell? ‎

The combination of the super sized landscapes and the unveiling of my mother’s headstone ‎provided the inspiration for this week’s post…‎

When I Am Big

When I am big
I will reach up
Arms rooted beyond
On tippy toes
Dreaming, seeking
To be more

When I am big
I will reach out
Arms towards you
Touching love
Connecting a synaptic web
To be with you

When I am big
I will reach deep
Arms extended
Looking in
Looking out
To be whole

When I am big
I will be brave
On the edge of fear
Cuddling anticipation
Fearing not the break of day
Wrinkled adventures for me

When I grow up
I'll be a girl
Laughing with glee
Dressing up
Making up

Eighty seven reasons to break out in dance!

By the way, I finally decided what I wanted to be when I grow up … I want to be a ‎helicopter pilot! I flew up in a helicopter for the first time and it was such a rush! In a word: ‎a m a z i n g! ! !‎

Should have read: when I grow up!
Can you adjust that post ?

Up I want to be more like you Helene!

Come to think of it I already am. Took my first flight lesson when I was 40. I went skydiving when I was 50. Just did my first white water kayaking at 61.

Still on my bucket list, I want to learn how to Tango.

You know how I love my new bicycle too. Next time make sure you stop by and see me in Minnesota! Cool you could meet up with Chris?
