Bangarang!

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.”
J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

We need more lost boys and girls. They live life as if there is no tomorrow and yearn always for adventure. Change, fun, happiness, and a hunger for everything.

I remember watching “Hook” when Rufio came flying down the ramps on his skateboard and yelled, “Bangarang!” So much freedom and fearlessness.

Too many of us live with a fear inside that we need to battle. It’s frightening peering deep inside oneself and trying to overcome those fears. They wrap about the heart and embrace us in waves of anxiety and hesitation. Few want to leap off that cliff without knowing how far the fall is.

It is one of those fears, the fear of the unknown or of other, that keeps many from embracing a world of peace and love. I would argue no single person is free of that one fear. Fear of other encompases many things – cultural fear, religious fear, spiritual fear, etc.

We need more lost boys and girls that are fearless and embrace the other in a spirit of adventure and pure unadulterated joy. We need more lost boys and girls to fly into the unknown, reaching further into that depth to encompass the world in the joy and love it will bring.

We need more Peter Pans that aren’t afraid of anything.

Fly

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.” J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

I have forgotten how to fly. I don’t doubt that I can; I have simply forgotten how. If you understand the difference, than you know exactly what I mean.

I’m so tired of being tired. This past week has been a whole world of nothing, followed by deep exhaustion and restless sleep. I’m not sure I can continue to blame the heat.

It’s funny – life, that is. Living in a fantasy world would be so much more freeing, wouldn’t it? A world where I can pretend everything is wonderful and all is shinny.

I can’t wait till I learn how to fly again and everything is wonderful…
