in 5 minutes: find

i find myself thinking about what life must have been like 100 years ago in this place.
travelers to a new world who have left everything familiar behind them in the hope of a new life.
freedom to worship as they pleased.
freedom to work as they desired.
freedom to be ... free.  a new life filled with hope.
i find myself thinking that i have more in common with them than some might think.
leaving florida was a leap in the dark, hoping that i would land somewhere on my feet and find myself again.
i'm getting there ... just gotta find that flashlight.
