For This Friday Night

I believe that in everyone's secret soul there is a thrill seeker.

 We seek the little or large...the things that make us smile, laugh and sometimes what makes us sweaty palmed.

Or other times, the thrills land in our lap. A few words with big brothers and before you know it, you're double dared to ride a helicopter.


And  who could ever regret doing something like that?

So here's to it. Here's to landing in a cornfield on the edge of town.

Here's to the sound of blades and wind everywhere.

Here's to the sun coming down over the prettiest of hometowns.

Here's to sharp turns and for a split second, not really knowing where my head is supposed to be.

Here's to my finger marks on the inside of the window.

And here's to ten minutes of grinning at new things.

Cheers guys.


P.S. They are giving rides all day tomorrow too. You should do it.

I bet it's good for your blood pressure.


  1. I am proud of and happy for you, Liv! There are few orientations that compare to getting the Bird'sEyeView of familiar surroundings.
    So glad that it was a good experience for you!

  2. Wow! I am so impressed that you rode in a helicopter, and jealous too... this is on my bucket list!

  3. Reading this made my throat constrict slightly. Good for you!!

  4. Oh my goodness - did your stomach do flips?
