Alaska, I’ve fallen in love with your splendor and the souls who call you home.
And to think, I’ve never wanted to set foot on your land.
Oh, how naive I was about you.
Only God knew, you and those who i met would be good for me.
The first time my eyes set sight on Alaska’s mountains my soul grew wings and an invisible part of me reveal herself to me as she became free.
While I’m out among Alaska’s nature, I exist, I truly exist. It’s as if I’ve been submerged in water most of my life, holding my breath and only allowed to surface one or twice a month. But here, I can breathe normal all the time. Like, I belong here. No longer do I come out to take a quick breath and go back inside of myself. I can stay out and live like I was created to live.
Now, every time I fly into Anchorage, I feel as if I’m coming home. Yet, I’ve never lived anywhere in the state of Alaska.
My heart, my soul and my mind are in perfect harmony when I’m here. If only, I could stay, I would finally not only see the whole me, but be totally free.
Every time the plane descends for a landing, I get trigger happy and the collection of photos begin. Then I become exuberant, for I know what awaits me once I’m out of the plane and in nature, FREEDOM!!!
