First you jump off the cliff and you build wings on the way down. ~Ray Bradbury

Yeah, the basic instinct here is to be strong and confident!
So miracle will happen and the wings are the proof resulted from our positive subconcious mind self empowerment:)
Thanks get zapped!

Most definitely true!

DEB said...

Um...I have an engineering degree. Trust me. It's better to build the wings first. THEN jump! :)

Devika said...

It is true...and its a conscious developing process

hahah But GZ, at times you are pushed down the cliff and then building wings becomes a different ball game altogether. :)

When I was a kid my main dream was being able to fly. I remember how I flyed in that time : exactly like swimming.
My main nightmare was being blind like a mole.
Just a question of power in fact for a child...
Now these two night movies are finished for me...

You can really sense the space between the rock and the sky. And sometimes you just have to do it and manage as best you can along the way. Nice post.

Lynn said...

that's some fast building! smooth sailing and landing I hope.

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

This is wild and crazy and oh so very true. Such wisdom.

raindog said...
