Surfwise

We get so absorbed in our little bubbles, leaning on inertia, believing that our perceived limitations are immovable.

It's not often that I get inspired (part inspiration, part indictment) by a movie trailer. Hat tip to Angelo.

Oooooh. Okay now that's gonna be a dangerous movie. Dangerous in the fact that I'm going to want that to be my life. Crap.

Yes, although Angelo and I were discussing it later and realizing that even though we might not want to do that exact thing, just the fact that they did something so far out of the norm is inspiring -- we could do anything.

Not that I wouldn't choose that exact adventure -- looks so epic.

I am so there. I had meant to send the link to you but forgot.... I was dreaming about that.

You saw it too, eh? I guess all of us workaday folks would find that vision kinda dreamy. Like Into the Wild without the loneliness and inconvenient mortality.

Wow, that is a pretty bold trailer. I think it looks great in some ways, but I do know that I couldn't do it (keep my kids out of school for example). I don't think I'm organized enough, to be honest. I do feel that each person has a level of freedom that calls to them, and I personally feel that I have reached that place where I feel comfortable. Our life isn't so structured and material that it consumes us, and when James steps out our back door and runs into the open yard I get that same feeling that the movie trailer depicts. I guess I'm just really happy where I am in life right now - and feel I have (mostly) everything I've dreamed of, except for more babies - but I believe they will come yet too. :)
