I have wanted to create a travel blog for a long time. A loooooong time.
The one thing that has held me back is that for the life of me I could not come up with a name!
And without a name, it just didn’t feel right to put thoughts to paper, not without them having a direction first.
So for what has felt like for ever, I have stewed and brainstormed and procrastinated. I have spent hours thinking up names, tossing and turning them in my mind, coming so very close to making a decision, to only exclaim “No! ‘Dancing with wilderbeasts under a Tuscan sky with orange juice’ is just not right!”.
And then, one sweet day it finally came to me.
I remembered one of my favourite quotes by Erin Hanson and I knew I had found my blog name.
“There is freedom waiting for you,
On the breezes of the sky,
And you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh but my darling,
What if you fly?”
– Erin Hanson
This quote is so very special to me, firstly because it reminds me of my late Granddad, yet also because within it’s words, all at once it conveys a connection with nature, a questioning heart, and a reassuring voice.
And that is exactly what Fly, my darling is about. ❤
