Spring Is In The Air
Spring has graced us finally in the south. I was starting to wonder if the world was going insane, and if mother nature was taking a break. I mean seriously, since when does this area of Florida have snow days. It rained didn't even snow here and the University was closed for the day JUST IN CASE it actually had snow that stuck. Well mother nature decided to finally come out of hiding and to give us some sun and warmth. The birds where singing this morning, SO what do we decided to do on this beautiful day.... go to the National Seashore and play in the sun instead of studying, which was the main reason for us to come there.
We went down towards the water and found some up rooted stumps that had the sand washed away from over the years, due to hurricanes and tropical storms. I leaped onto the one closest to the water and right away fell off. Apparently I had not realized that the stump was horrible uneven. Bree quickly finds her own stump and jumps upon it and unlike my gracefulness, she stays up. At this point the image I see around me causes me to flash back to when I was a little girl and siting at home during the summer on the couch watching The Karate Kid and Mr Miyagi was teaching Daniel how to be graceful and steady, and I decided to try out my ninja skills.
As two peas in a pod me and my bestest Bree always build on to each others ideas. Its kinda scary the stuff that we come up with, BUT so interesting. Cause to the outside world we are just two normal looking girls that seem to have the right kind of mind. Although this is not true, when we are together we will find the most simple thing and turn it into a load of fun. For instance, a shadow. When most people see a shadow they dismiss it and move on with their day and don't take the time to really look at it and study the magnificent figure that follows them everywhere they go. Its not just a shadow to us but an extension of ourselves. A part of us that is trying to come out and join this magnificent world that we are a part of. To help the shadow with not felling so left out we often decide to interact with it. To play some kind of game. Almost like a shadow version of Simon says. Can the shadow hold the pose for longer than us, can we out smart the shadow by doing acrobats?
On the winner of this particular game of Shadow Simon, it can not be determined. The wind started to pick up as the sun starting to get tired. This gave the shadow a disadvantage as to the fact that it could not stay up much longer for the moon was coming out for the day, and us a disadvantage as to that we could not stand up very well on the stumps that were all lop sided and the wind was knocking us off. So we decided it was time to say good bye to our other halves and to head back to the big world outside of our free loving spirits worlds. But shadow's we will meet again and have a rematch. For now just fly, fly like and eagle.
