Taking Flight

During dinner one night I asked my son what he wanted to be when he grew up. He gave the typical answers of “football player, house builder, someone who makes video games.” When I asked my daughter what she wanted to be, she said, “a bird” . . . and I had a really hard time concentrating on dinner after that because I’ve always wanted to be a bird too.

You realize that this will lead to at least one wise-acre calling you a "bird brain", or at least accusing you of having "birds on the brain". There, it's done. You can go back to musing on the mystic link between mother and daughter. You don't say what your husband does (or ex, or significant other, as the case may be).

I get the idea of wanting to be a something that is evolution of oneself, ie football player, etc. It shows a one-way tunnel-like vision of what can be. To change everything, though, maybe it is because of that damned Y chrmosome, but I don't get that. I agree with Vic...care to elaborate?

It all stems from a creative soul, being able to fly, spreading your wings, seeing things from a perspective that most people never get the chance to do, wanting to do something out of the ordinary, feeling free, get it? No one should ever stop you from any of your dreams, even if it's being a bird. And, I thought her comment was pretty funny!

To soar like a hawk has always been a personal daydream. I love their freedom to drift with the wind, to soar, to swoop, so effortlessly, so far above the mundane.

Ahhh, finally, a man that knows the feeling. Thank you! I was losing hope.
