I am an adult. Can I play?

July 26, 2016

 

 

Today I started my journey to England. At this moment I am watching the sunset from the airplane. It is breathtaking and makes me pause after every sentence that I write to absorb it. Everything is orange in the sky.

 

I wonder...would it be possible for an airplane to travel continuously towards the sunset and one be always able to see it? That would be cool! 

 

I love sunsets. There is something in this moment of the day that brings me back home; I can enjoy plenty the present moment in which I can feel grateful for my past that brought me here and, at the same time, I can have a sweet longing for the infinite possibilities that the future prepares for me. I am here and now, always and everywhere, nowhere and never at the same moment.

 

But anyway...right now I wanted to talk about my stopover in Vancouver because I had soooooooo much fun playing with Brenna and Bryleigh, splashing in the waterfalls!

And when I think I could have missed it for nothing... Why?

 

Because I have a flight to catch and I can't be wet but... I happen to have a change of clothes with me.

 

Because it is too much of a story to change clothes but...there is a public bathroom in front of the water fountains.

 

Because I have no plastic bag to put in the wet clothes afterwards but...there is a coffee shop right next to the bathrooms, they must have a bag to give me.

 

Because there are no other adults playing into the fountains but... there are two sweet girls who invite me to get wet and more wet and discover exciting ways to splash into the waters.

 

Because there are men sitting at the coffee who will see me as childish and surely not attractive but... finally who really cares when it is about true pleasure!

 

 

 

 

 

So, fortunately excuses didn't work. I played, I got wet and more wet, I laughed, I made new friends and gained a big waterhug that gives me the energy to continue my journey with joy and openness, looking forward to the surprises of the unknown and unexpected that unfortunately include (hopefully the temporary) loss of my baggage at my final destination but... the journey goes on anyway!
