I think it is a combination of his voice, the soulful guitar, the specific words, and the intangible feeling that you just want it to be so that makes me play the song over and over and think or dream about what could be .
Willie Nelson is the voice. His guitar centerpiece of the song is haunting. But the words…Angel Flying To Close to the Ground….takes me away.Take a moment and listen to it. It will stay with you. It always gets me thinking about those who are just so true and present in an ever glowing light. How many angels do you know? You know, those among us who just make you feel more. Feel better. Feel safer. Feel connected. Feel not alone. Feel not lost. Feel not isolated. Feel one with a larger story. Feel lighter.
I say feel because this is not about thinking or mind games or clever one liners. I am so weary of those who think that thinking solves the issues. I know it helps, but feeling the truth of the larger story is where the angels reside. Can you find your angel part. That part of you that is just more.
Today, be open to the angels around you. Some are flying close to the ground.
The ageless experiment.
