You Gotta Jump

My Dear Ones ~

Adrenaline rush occurs naturally in life circumstances. It’s not necessary to force it unless not too much excites you. In that case I guess you gotta jump. Beau is this magical creature being person you may or may not know has been backing me on guitar for over 10 years. He’s been a concert guitarist/composer for 7 years, playing all over Europe. He is also my son, youngest of 3: Leilah, first born..Jeordie, middle child...then Beau Jarred, baby.

Beau once told me every time he gets on a plane he wonders what it would feel like to go through the clouds, jump from a plane into the air. And today he got to find out. Through my protest he probably heard at 14,000 feet, strapped to Tyler, a total stranger, now new old friend. He bolted from the cockpit on his knees, hands crossed at his heart, a sacrificial looking position of a small beach craft. Freefalling at 157 miles per hour for a full 60 seconds, then parachuted to the ground (through the clouds). He said it was like remembering what it was to fly ~ now he’s determined to orchestrate music that rekindles that memory in all of us.

As a child, I learned how to fly in my dreams.

With love from down on the ground,

Melanie

P.S. Beau says he gets his biggest rush creating music and playing guitar with his mom ~ he promises not to jump out of planes again. At least not for a while.

Happy Mother's Day!
