Dear Diary, this summer I took a helicopter ride. It was kind of a “prove it then” ride. As I have told you too many times perhaps, I don’t really like to travel. This summer when I saw these helicopter rides I decided I need to prove that I was not afraid to fly. I have flown many times, and it has never bothered me, more that it bothers the average person. So when I saw that helicopter, I decided that I needed to get in it, to prove it to myself, just to make sure. I did.
And you know what. I was not afraid. I was captivated by how beautiful Pugwash estuary was from the air. I saw how the tidal flats created hearts below. No wonder I love them so. I saw the texture is everywhere in the landscape. I saw a big quilt below me. I saw beauty.
So there you go. You set out to prove something to yourself and you find something you never knew was there at all. It was a lovely day. It is good to do the ordinary, but it is also good to step outside and take a ride in the sky.
