She dances around and through me, laughing and singing. For a moment, she is still. And in that moment, I want nothing more than to ride the wind – and so I leap. I leap off of that tiny ledge and onto the back of freedom. Her strides as strong as a stallion and steady as an eagle. And I find that I am free. Free to move, free to think, free to feel. Free to -- BE.
In that moment, I am nothing and I am everything. I am not alive, yet I am finally living. I am not dead, yet my spirit is no longer connected to my body. I feel, see, hear, taste, and smell nothing. And yet, my senses have never been so awake and so active. My life is not my life, but the life of a heart once bound by fear, confusion, and pain now freed. My mind has been modified into an ocean of possibilities and a canyon alight with hope.
And for just this one moment, I have escaped from myself and found -- ME.
