Monday Musings & Inspiration: You'll See the Way to Fly!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

Yesterday afternoon, when we strolled to the beach, the lighting was other worldly, ethereal defined as extremely delicate and light in a way that seems too perfect for this world!   We felt that it was such a beautiful feeling being there, that we could fly.  

Flying is a word that has so many meanings, like acing a test with flying colors. In songs, being in love and feeling you could fly, or feeling good--flying high!

 

"Don't believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding, find out what you already know, and you'll see the way to fly."

~ Richard Bach

We watched pelicans fly in formation as they skimmed the waves looking for fish to catch, and we imagined what it would be like to have that soaring experience of looking down with wings  to keep us in the air.

Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.

- Leonardo da Vinci

As we were walking back heading home, we heard some very noisy motors behind us, and looked up.  Two guys we sailing across the sky in their motorized paragliders.  They flew up to the Carpinteria Bluffs, where they could safely land.

 

"Everyone has ocean’s to fly, if they have the heart to do it. Is it reckless? Maybe. But what do dreams know of boundaries?"

- Amelia Earhart


"We have to be continually jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down."

- Kurt Vonnegut

This Monday, today is a celebration of the contribution and impact that Martin Luther King, Jr. made to our nation.  He saw the way to fly!

"If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward." 

~Martin Luther King, Jr.

Hi Ron and Alexandra - wow, how great are those shots.  The first creates an optical allusion of a low ceiling.
