“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
― Leonardo da Vinci
There are all kinds of things that after you do them once, you do everything possible for the chance to do it again. Flying for me was one of those. I love being in the air no matter the mode of transportation. Certain drug experiences have been like that too. Having once tasted them you look forward to experience that taste of reality being more fluid than you heretofore believed (or so I’ve been told.) Mystical experiences have been much like that to me as well. Not that I have had many but each time I want to feel that way again. So we strive for the taste of the sky and when we land, we try to keep our new understandings within as we look up, ever up.
