What Would Kannidu?
So, here was my early morning Tweet:
Foolhardy, careless, irresponsible, wreckless. All those things I’m not, but wish I could be for just one blazing fun day!!!
Been feeling that annual craving to escape, and the injuries, sicknesses, and traveling husbands (well, one traveling husband to be exact) have been adding to that feeling of oppression that leads to my soul’s craving for adventure. This morning the feeling was amplified, thus my Twit, I mean, Tweet.
But it got me thinking…what exactly would I do if I could let go of my obligations and responsibilities, as well as my worrisome, predictable, overly cautious spirit for just a little while? (Of course, I got rid of that one day condition. Oh, yeah….and I went with the assumption that money and physical ability were no object. lol) What things would I desire to do that I won’t do because of who I am, because of my personality? For example, I have no desire to bungy jump. Even if I wasn’t scared, the idea is not at all compelling to me. So what would I do? Hmmm.
As the day wore on, a few thoughts came to mind….
I would climb the fence blocking off the old crumbling Fenimore Bridge, walk across and take photos of the Hudson River from that vantage point.
I would drink port until I could no longer lift my glass.
I would borrow a boat and camp all alone under the stars on one of the islands in the Narrows on Lake George.
I would sneak past the barriers and lie down in the middle of Stonehenge and do nothing but contemplate…what I would contemplate? Who knows, but that’s what I would do.
I would go on an African Safari.
I would hike the Australian Outback.
I would sunbathe on a topless beach.
I would smoke a pipe…just once.
I would hike the entire Appalachian Trail.
I would raft the Colorado River.
I would apply for the show Survivor.
I’m sure there’s more, but that’s a pretty good start. So, now you know what I would do…what would YOU do????
