// my desire. //
I seek happiness in what society claims foolish. Not large white houses nor a comfortable family of four. I do not desire what this world has to offer, but what I do is to find myself in what He has placed around me. These climbable trees. Mountains miles high. A dirty road that stretches past the horizon calling my name to walk. Fields overflowing with untamed horses to ride, bareback while shooting aimlessly with an Indian’s arrow to the sky. Smelling the air of different places and wind flowing through my hair. Sailing from the atlantic to pacific, catching fish to survive and praying waves don’t tip what keeps me alive. I want to jump off the highest cliffs into the clearest waters and fall into the hands of my lover who will save me from danger, being the prince charming I’ve always dreamed about. I want to try real Italian, real Indian, real Japanese, real Mexican, real foods…not the americanized things saturated in oil and sodium. Raw. Soar through the sky in one of those dorito shaped things and land on a cushion made of cotton candy. Skydive in Hawaii and be lifted up on a hot air balloon over the grand canyons. Sink to the bottom of the ocean in a yellow submarine to see the strangest of creatures. Dance with elephants and sing with parrots. witness to a crowd of unbelievers in the suburbs of africa. Lay under the stars beside him holding his hand on an abandoned shore in Greece sharing a blanket with homemade baklava. Make pen pal buddies as I travel and write letters to and fro. Raft the brutalist of brutal waters…and live. Crash a fashion show in London. Run across Rhode Island without stopping. Kill a moose worth hanging. Make art that will be seen by every eye. Commit myself to him eternally. love him endlessly. He will be my “partner in crime.” We will adventure this world together not claiming a career but live freely and trusting that God will provide. We will live a life unlike any other. We will experience happiness without materialistic things and appreciate even more what we take for granted. Homeless or with a home, glory be to Him who supplies our every breath. This is what I desire, a life of adventure.
