To die would be an awfully big adventure...

I have been thinking a lot about that quote from Peter Pan. Maybe it's because right now I am miserable and sick, but maybe it's just because as we get older adventure moves further and further away from our grasp. When we are little walking down to the mail box is an adventure, the first day of school is an adventure... the list goes on and on of small triumphs and adventures that we get to experience every day as children and teens. And then one day adulthood hits and we start to think less about the adventure of it all and more about the inherent risks that are involved in the adventures. It's funny that all those things we swore we'd do when we were 'all grown up' fall by the side of the road of life and we are faced with mundane responsibilities and taking care of 'grown-up' responsibilities. We grow, we change and things get... lost somewhere. I want to find all that I have lost. Because I miss it. I want to throw caution to the wind, running free. I wish... that I could recklessly love, just the way I am longing to. Because I feel as if these four walls are closing in and I can't help but wonder if this is all there is to life, do we chose are own lives or do they chose us? Do we make the beds we much sleep in or... Can we change our fate?

I want adventure back in my life. To breath and to live adventure, to be filled with wonder again. I don't know. I want to feel the wind in my hair, facing my fears, but not feeling scared. Have you ever felt like you were waiting for something? Holding your breath and looking out toward the horizon once a minute to see what it is that is on a collision course with your heart and mind? That's how I keep feeling. Like I am waiting for something.. or for someone? Gah, sorry for the all the questions that I couldn't answer and the pensive tone. I am just... thinking and waiting, for something, someone, anything. So till it or they show, I will leave you with the words of Stephen Sodenheim's classic musical, West Side Story.

Something's Coming-
Who knows?
Could be!
There's something due any day;
I will know right away,
Soon as it shows.
It may come cannonballing down through the sky,
Gleam in its eye,
Bright as a rose!

Who knows?
It's only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Under a tree.
I got a feeling there's a miracle due,
Gonna come true,
Coming to me!

Could it be? Yes, it could.
Something's coming, something good,
If I can wait!
Something's coming, I don't know what it is,
But it is
Gonna be great!

With a click, with a shock,
Phone'll jingle, door'll knock,
Open the latch!
Something's coming, don't know when, but it's soon;
Catch the moon,
One-handed catch!

Around the corner,
Or whistling down the river,
Come on, deliver
To me!
Will it be? Yes, it will.
Maybe just by holding still,
It'll be there!

Come on, something, come on in, don't be shy,
Meet a guy,
Pull up a chair!
The air is humming,
And something great is coming!
Who knows?
It's only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Maybe tonight . . .
