The Breathless Fantasy...

There's A Fine Line Between Fantasy And Reality... I'm Dancing On That Line

My heart guides me, but my mind always finds me..... "I could be in the street, I could be on a train, Or struck in some doorway down, In the pouring rain, Now there is not one place, That doesn't feel like home...."

Greatness In Simplicity...

The heat was almost unbearable today. I had originally planned on running a few errands, and finishing up my shopping. Did things work out the way I had planned? Of course not. While I was walking down the sidewalk, I noticed a fire hydrant that was spraying water, and the children running around, enjoying every minute of it. During the summer, this isn't something that's especially uncommon. The smiles on these children's faces made my day. The innocence. The purity. The contentment of the moment. Living for what was right there before them. Enjoying the simplicity of water. They didn't have to have a pool, or a beach, they had a fire hydrant, and that, for the moment, was enough.

I put my purse down, and ran through the water with them, laughing and screaming like I was 10 years old again. It felt good. It felt good to just live in the moment, to be happy with the way things were in the moment. I felt good to not worry about bills, men, or work. It was exhilarating to just let the water spray over my body. My mascara was running down my cheeks, and my wet hair made me look like a drowned rat! I looked homeless, and felt like a queen. I was young and free.

I didn't accomplish a thing I had intended to today. I didn't pay any bills. I didn't buy groceries. I didn't go to Louis Vuitton to see the new fall line. I ran around a fire hydrant, and lived for the moment. I lived in the moment, and accomplished more than I had in a long time.
