The Adventures of Aquarius Boy – p.10

June 28, 2011 at 2:47 pm 1 comment

Aquarius Boy could not believe what was happening to him. He was soaring through thick gray clouds, rising higher and faster, without even flapping his arms. It seemed as if all he had to do was think about going up, and up he went.

Presently he rose through the top of the clouds and all around him was the clear blue sky. The sun was dipping towards the horizon, and as he flew he watched it set, delighting in all the changing colors of the very air he floated on: pink, orange, purple, and indigo, until finally the stars came out, and the crescent moon appeared. He flew and flew, unaware of the passing of time, his eyes fixed on the constellations and planets of the firmament.

He was filled with joy, but with questions, too, and began to wonder how it was that he could fly at all. He could not remember the starlings teaching him; in fact, they had not even spoken to him. He decided to pay them another visit, and show them that he no longer needed their help. He aimed his thoughts at the ground, and sank beneath the clouds again.

    With all the doom, gloom and frothing-at-the-mouth news/political stuff clogging my in box when I got home today, this was a blessing. I feel I can breathe for a little while. Thanks. Always. PB
