On Valentine’s Day, I looked out the window. An airplane was attempting to write a “Happy Valentine’s Day” message in the sky. At first I thought how sweet and romantic a gift that was, and I felt a pang of sadness. I wondered if anyone would ever love me enough to proclaim it to me in that way. But no sooner had the word “Happy” appeared in the sky, when it began to blur as the winds shifted. As soon as that hopeful message appeared, it was gone forever, carried by the wind. My past relationship was a lot like that message. We wrote a history together, but after the hurts and infidelities I realize now that message was never meant to last, at least not for us. But as I looked out the window at the now clear blue sky another thought occurred to me. Why couldn’t I write my own message of love to myself? In my Mind’s Sky? I’m an awesome woman of a Certain Age. I’ve weathered a storm and come out the other side. I don’t need to wait for someone else to tell me anything. I can proclaim my own joy! I’m not a woman trapped in a loveless relationship! How’s that for a Valentine’s Day message! I am free! Free to write my own Happy Story – in The Chalkboard Sky.
