birds gotta fly

i grew up in a home filled with music, art, intellectual conversation, laughter, friends, good food, literature and love of God.  the music we listened to at home covered all the bases: gospel - opera - broadway - chorale - the great works of music - and each of us had our favorites.  

although "Show Boat" is not one of my favorite musicals - it hosts one of my favorite songs - "Can't Help Lovin' that Man."  i always loved the line - "fish gotta swim and birds gotta fly." 
"birds gotta' fly"

one of my favorite dreams is the dream that i am flying - 
i am soaring far above the earth - 
like a bird who has just caught the perfect current.  

"the reason birds can fly and we can't is simply because 
they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings."
JM Barris - "The Little White Bird"

i won't be flying like a bird on earth, but i love soaring in what i have been destined.  

find your current of wind, spread those wings and fly!

fly high this beautiful Labor Day
