on being free

lately i've been thinking a lot about being free.
free from the corporate gauntlet.
free from the landscape of the midwest & the months of january - march.
free from the fear of not living everyday to its fullest.
free from the fear of getting old.
free from the need to budget instead of freely spending.
free from the negativity of the world.
but you don't really choose your life & you can't really just get up and fly away.
it would, however, be nice to jet off in a vespa for a few days.
to a new & uncharted territory.

to see napa valley in the fall.
to enjoy some really good wine & stay at a bed and breakfast.
to soak up the evening sun in a perfectly put together outfit with my husband
while enjoying even more wine. and a good book. sans a laptop or blackberry.
is that too much to ask?

if being free is not to have wings, but to have two wheels -
where would you go?
