'heron and fish'
- as i cycled along the canal one day, i saw a heron flying magnificently on top of the canal water with a fish or something in its beak. (i think it was a heron...bird that lives on london canal). it left a vivid image in my mind as i rode along it for a few brief seconds. the sun hot, the sky blue, the waters glistening, its wings stretched, the wind rushing pass me, the muscles in my legs relaxing and tensing as i cycled.
i thought; i wished to be magnificent like that. i wished to be simple like that. and i did feel magnificent in that moment as i felt my body alive, fighting the exhausion of the long cycle and determination to be on time for work (commuting issues has caused me to be late too many times for my liking). the image has been constantly flashing in my head. i wanted that freedom, i wanted to live. i wanted to be that strong. i wanted to fly in my life magnificently and be remembered by these snapshots of brilliance. life is hard and staying with someone is full of ups and downs. i understand that, but regardless, i think if i was to shine like that scene even just for a few seconds, then inspiration and motivation can live on. to see a life live is a blessing.
