Thinker : Dreams : Space Expands When I Fly

by Date

I decided to go flying, like I usually do, by flapping my arms the way a locomotive begins turning its wheels from a dead stop. I flew well. When I landed, I did a little flourish to show off. I told the people near me that when I fly, space expands: like Alice in Wonderland, I become smaller or the world becomes larger.

Someone said that my flying ability meant I was going to be a general. I didn't want to be a general and didn't like him saying so. I would rather be a sprite in the forest, just being part of the wonder.
