Flight

Flight

“We swung over the hills and over the town and back again, and I saw how a man can be master of a craft, and how a craft can be master of an element.  I saw the alchemy of perspective reduce my world, and all my other life, to grains in a cup.  I learned to watch, to put my trust in other hands than mine.  And I learned to wander.  I learned what every dreaming child needs to know — that no horizon is so far that you cannot get above or beyond it.”

–Beryl Markham, West with the Night
