Flying

 

(Written on Thai Airways, Oct 12, 1999, Tokyo -> Los Angeles)

 

Stretch

Stretch your hands on the side parallel to the ground

Like the wings of the Canadian Geese!

Keep them stretched

Until you feel movement of the wings!

 

Stretch your hands up -

As if you are reaching the sky

Keep them stretched

Until you feel the lift!

 

Stretch your hands forward -

As if you are reaching the horizon

Keep them stretched

Until you feel the takeoff!

Now close your eyes and think blank

Until you feel you are flying!
