"When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes
turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return."
Leonardo Da Vinci
Experience is never limited, and it is never complete; it is an immense sensibility, a kind of huge spider-web of the finest silken threads suspended in the chamber of consciousness, and catching every air-borne particle in its tissue.
They came my first morning home, to thrill and delight me, to renew our communion, to remind me of the joy and freedom of a life well lived. They told me that joy is a choice....and one we can make each moment of every day. These messengers of joy, they give me the gift of their presence every day, allowing me to come within even a few feet of them, in my passionate attempt to share their magnificence with the world.
I will hold their image, and the memory of their vibrating wings within inches of my grateful body...the grace and sureness of their inspired flight, I will hold it in my heart and mind to sustain me in the days to come.
