es·cape | iˈskāp | verb | To break free from confinement or control; succeed in eluding something unpleasant or undesirable.
The grey world grows exponentially smaller. Enveloped in an opaque blanket shielding all that is familiar, here, in this moment, with no distractions, no landmarks, no context, and only streaks of blurry white guiding the way, do I find complete isolation. Finally, a chance to escape into the thoughts that have long lingered unattended. Those of fear, questioning, angst, frustration. Minutes seem like hours, sitting in this discomfort. Then suddenly, we are released from our snowy-white cage into skies so clear, and a sun so radiant, it’s hard to believe the past 3 months have been lived in a kingdom of rainy gloom. Here, no longer a citizen of land, but a stranger to the skies, do I find freedom. Released from plaguing thoughts, nagging schedules, and unrealized expectations. It is in this space, I re-write my story.
