It was more like moving from one side to another than dancing, but she was doing it anyway… anyone who would have seen her in that moment could have said that she must have been drunk or something… she didn’t care! Half naked, with a grey T-short and black panties on, with her eyes closed and tousled, but curly, soft hair, she was dancing on the terrace…

She was finally HOME and she was celebrating this by dancing…

White painted walls waiting for new memories to be hanged on, fresh oiled wooden floors, clean shining windows with a beautiful view to the river and the blue, clear summer sky… she could have felt still the smell of the paint…

S5000045And the big, green trees in front of the house!! Oh those trees!! They were like tall, brave knights ready to protect her in a dark, stormy night or offer her shadow in a too warm summer day… in the sunlight, the leaves of the trees seemed to look like butterflies, dancing on the walls of the house…

A new HOME… her HOME…

She worked so hard to have it so… she traveled so much… she got lost, she got desperate, she went up and down, she fell in her knees… she had millions of times when she believed she won’t gonna make it… her path has been blessed with storms, sad sunsets, lonely evenings, tears- sometimes of joy, but mostly of sadness, but also with shiny mornings full of hope that that could be THE DAY…

A 33 years journey… 33 years of trying to read and understand THE SIGNS life was showing to her… 33 years of frustration that she couldn’t do it… she couldn’t understand what is the purpose… 33 years of being needy, thirsty and hungry for the truth that nobody wanted or knew how to tell it to her…

And she made it! Finally she was HOME…

She stopped dancing, but still standing, with her head a bit up and eyes still closed, the girl raised her beautiful hands in the air as if she was asking the sun to touch and warm her body… what a precious feeling! Time and space suddenly lost their meaning in that moment… a moment of silence, freedom and happiness…

She took a deep breath, feeling how the fresh air was filling her lungs with health and then crossing her entire body from toes and back up to her usually restless, but now so peaceful mind.

She opened then her big brown eyes, slowly and on the blue sky she saw a flock of birds describing a V, but like an arrow, heading west… the girl smiled. Her entire body was smiling. She was happy.

“Mommy look!! I am flying!!!”

The girl left her hands down and turned her back hearing the sound of a childish voice coming from the house… she started to laugh looking at her own flesh and blood describing invisible circles on the new floors…

“Yes, dear… you are flying! You are definitely flying!”
