An Abstraction of Flight

There exists a certain and specific (yet unbounded) freedom in our perception of the flight of birds; a freedom and peace which, if not even the actual lived experience of those magnificent floating creatures, still suggests in dynamic motion a possible state of mind and being in which the various burdens of life are shed, in which our worries and fears might all fall away somewhere far below us to dissolve into nothingness.

Impossible things may be all the more beautiful for their sum intangible unattainability; and dreams, perhaps not unlike beauty, possess more power and living consequence as pure and abstract dream than they ever could as attainable reality.
