Remembering Makes Me Smile

I first dreamed I could fly when I was very young. Ascending past the tallest trees plunged me among the clouds—and past, but sun’s bright rays refused to burn my tender flesh. I felt quite free on each sojourn. Did love of make-believe engender dreams of flight? Was it vice versa? I just know I still delight in memories of dreamt adventures in the night.

It seems that, as fish, we made the transition to land as a compromise, so continue producing offspring who can take off! Aloha! Rico
