Summer reminds me that I'm in free fall.
Free from obligations, but it's fulfilling my responsibilities that makes me shine.
The fall is a sensory overload.
Every moment of excitement or concern for the future is like a gust of wind I can feel rushing past my face and into my mind.
It all touches me so deeply.
Sometimes I want to fight it - the stagnant summer and what comes after.
Sometimes I want to freeze the free fall or fast forward to a time of peace and knowledge.
But the ground is fast approaching..
So I should enjoy my moment of flight.
All my hard work has already broken my fall and let my wings unfurl.
I'm ready to fly...
Or at least hit the ground running.
