Higher Sounds: Goapele- Closer/On the Path: The Brink

How Fitting.

I am writing this post with less than 3 hours before I ride the earliest morning bus and train to the Atlanta airport.  If my stand-by flight goes as planned, I’d be in City that Never Sleeps by 9:45am.  As you may have guessed, I am excited and 100% restless.  However, I’m also feeling this weird sensation of not exactly knowing what I’m getting into, feeling “outside of time” with the upcoming events.  I’ve been asking myself from time to time, “What am I doing?”  “Is this REALLY happening?”  I guess when your passion brings you to the brink of something magnificent, it becomes an out-of-body experience.

And all I’m doing is previewing New York City.

From today (Friday) through Tuesday I will be in New York City before “The Big Move” in about 2 weeks.  My family reunion in Long Island is Saturday (haven’t been to it in 5 years- boy don’t I have some stories to tell…) and my New York Fashion Week client POSHGLAM is heading a brunch with powerhouse fashion invitees (I’ll be covering this…with my business cards on deck).  The remainder of the time will be sizing up this special city- where my dreams will take off.  I have a lot of ground I want to cover and a lot of key people I want to meet in this small time frame…and shoot lots of frames.

The anticipation is both exhilarating and anxiety-inducing.  What will happen by Tuesday I don’t know…but I’ll definitely keep you posted.

Closer to my dreams
Getting over, I’m gettin’ higher
Closer to my dreams
I’m getting higher and higher

Feel it in my sleep
Some times it feels like I’ll never go pass again
Some times it feels like I’m stuck forever and ever
When I’m going higher

Closer to my dreams
I’m goin’ higher and higher
I ain’t gonna sleep
Some times you just have to let it go (Let it go, let
it go)
Leaving all my fears to burn down
Push them away so I can move on

Closer to my dreams
And higher and higher, higher
Feel it in my being (I can feel it flow around me)
I know that I could not go alone (No, no)

I’m moving higher (Higher), oh…
I’m going higher and higher and higher (Higher and
Closer to my dreams (Higher and higher, oh…oh…)
I’m moving upward and onward and beyond all I can see
(Stretching out my arms so I can breathe)
