Favorite Quote:
Uniqueness is so commonplace a property of living things that there is nothing at all unique about it. — Lewis Thomas

To delve into a sea of blue
And not get wet
But still feel the exhilaration—
Now, THAT is the magic
of flying.

To hear the sound of wings
And imagine
I am a bird, whisp'ring
To the people and trees
That swish by,

I am victim
To the lure of flying;
I am a hobo of the air.
