When I was a young girl I had to walk about a mile to school
each morning, home for lunch- back to school, and home again!!
This was in all sorts of Ohio weather
I would yearn to fly --the skill of a bird, to float high above the
ground and travel almost effortlessly the long distance
to school and back.......
drinking from sprinklers I could master, and did:)
but never could I chase an airplane
or even have a chat w/ a friend atop a lightpost.
Ahh the life of a bird!
