internal angular momentum


what i know about flying:

when i was 2, i would sneak out into the back yard and spin in circles until i was totally dizzy. then i would weave about the yard in that altered state, thinking i was hovering over the ground. no matter that it was just my perception, i experienced flying in total joy and delight.

the clear mind belongs to spirit and is like the immortality of childhood. it calls us to rise up to life, to rise up to the task, to buoyantly rise above the challenges, to foster self-respect which keeps us aloft as the next challenges surface.

in my dreams of late i fly through maze-like houses. i keep coming to deadends. my arms are so very very tired but i am determined to get to the center.
somehow in my psyche, this major aerobic activity promises to manifest evanescence, the lightness of a young heart. ....besides,"how can you keep your feet on the ground when you were meant to fly?" (some ol' country song)

like the larger bodies in the universe may we work with gravity (and the things that bring us down) to exercise our internal angular momentum (spin)!
