Shot Of The Day

Three Flamingos

Why I Don't Want To Be A Flamingo!

Flamingos don’t wear boots! And I want to die with my boots on—riding rough on my horse, all out, breathless, surrounded by like-minded people who are hungry to live. I don’t want to be a flamingo with my head buried in my feathers hiding from the challenge of life. I want to die spent from living every second of every day. I want to suck down my last breath with hunger and without regret that I could have breathed harder, lived fuller, danced more. I want to die knowing that I did everything I could to please the creator who put me here. I want to die with my boots on.
