Flying || Fliegen

Back in the days I used to have a postcard sitting right in front of me on my desk at work, saying:

To Do List:
1) Learning to fly
2) Flying away

That was a time I had a real busy working life, more or less just living for my job, because I loved what I did. I used to take good care of my long long To Do List, telling me what to do next in order to make sure I won’t forget a single thing. There always has been plenty to do. And as I said before, I loved what I did. Still there were tough days and during those days, I sometimes wished to simply be able to fly away in order to escape lunacy

I always enjoyed this idea of being free and going where I wanted to. And that’s what I did for many years.

My life has changed. I am at home with myself. I don’t have this feeling anymore, of “needing to escape”. I never had any regrets in my life, so there never has been this urge of really flying away. Plus I’ve grown. I don’t need to do this anymore. I am way more mature. I learned that my heart and soul always will be free. I am free to do what ever. I always have a choice.

I may use my wings to simply enjoy life and that is what I’m doing today.

Früher hatte ich bei der Arbeit eine Postkarte vor mir auf meinem Schreibtisch, die besagte:

To Do Liste:
1) Fliegen lernen
2) Wegfliegen

Das war eine Zeit, in der ich sehr beschäftigt war und mehr oder weniger nur für meinen Job lebte. Ich liebte, was ich tat. Früher habe ich meine lange lange To Do Liste gehütet, denn diese gab mir vor, was als nächstes zu tun war, sicherstellend, dass ich keine Kleinigkeit vergesse. Es gab immer viel zu tun. Und wie gesagt, ich habe geliebt, was ich getan habe. Trotzdem gab es harte Tage, und an diesen wollte ich manchmal einfach weg fliegen können, um dem Wahnsinn zu entkommen.

Ich habe es immer genossen, frei zu sein und dorthin zu gehen, wo ich wollte. Und das habe ich viele Jahre gemacht.

Mein Leben hat sich verändert. Ich bin nun bei mir zu Hause. Ich habe nicht mehr das Gefühl, „fliehen zu müssen“. Ich habe in meinem Leben nie etwas bereut, also gab es nie den Drang, wirklich wegzufliegen. Außerdem bin ich gewachsen. Ich muss das nicht mehr machen. Ich bin viel erfüllter. Ich habe gelernt, dass mein Herz und meine Seele immer frei sind. Ich bin frei, was auch immer zu tun. Ich habe eine Wahl.

Ich kann meine Flügel benutzen, um einfach das Leben zu genießen und das ist es, was ich heute tue.

    “Lunacy” is a word I haven’t seen in a long long time. It’s a great word. LOL…(wiping tears from my eyes)!

    I’m not remembering that…the moon goes through phases that repeat, and many beings on Earth have adapted to these phases…and they react. Some mate…some are born on the full moon and make their way to the sea. Human, in a full moon, get crazy…”Lunacy.” Luna=moon.

    It’s nice the moon has a liger you…moved past that fullness that is so tiring…exhausting really. Now the days have some…

    And you can see to go…or fly were you will…and even simply roost under shaded eves or under cool trees…and just take in the beauty.

    I’m glad you shared what you wrote.

      It IS an old school word! I do not hear the word used…maybe I’ve heard it used once in 20 years. Seriously. I don’t even hear the word “Lunatic” very often.

      When I was just starting out in this world and gaining my words, I did hear lunacy and lunatic much more often. That was 50 something years ago.

      It’s a great word…it’s a fantastic word. “Idiot” or “idiocy” are very static/stagnating words that imply a permanent state, but Lunacy and Lunatic…not so much considering the root word “Luna” Meaning Moon….change…mood, feelings that go up and down from good to bad, sane and crazy in cycles.

      …thank you Ian! I enjoy learning and using more than the regular every day words… so now I sure remember lunacy and your discription. Thank you so much! By the way -as I was younger I used to go to a club out on Reeperbahn in Hamburg. It was called “Lunacy”.

    Ja, die Freiheit liegt in einem selbst. Manchmal ist es ein langer Weg bis diese Bewusstheit entsteht und an die Oberfläche kommt. Aber ist die sie endlich da, ist auch die Freiheit da 🙂
    Sehr schönes Blog ❤
