Practice Flying, But Don't Forget ToTake A Breather





The trick is to know when to stop flapping. Sometimes, you soar eloquently, and others, well - you just can't get off the ground. Then you need to reign in a bit, rest, reconsider and preen your flight feathers for another day, another try, in friendlier breezes. (The gals on the beach in Chatham, MA do Yoga every morning - I was always amazed that they could avert their eyes from the ocean and beach grasses whilst concentrating on their poses. A few days ago I watched this squirrel from my bedroom window. It was raining. I actuallly saw him close his eyes and nod off. Awwww.)

We use that phrase here from time to time: stop flapping and start soaring.

Oh definitely! Soaring is good. But if you can't get a thermal or the head wind is just a little bruising . . well, perhaps a friendly branch and a little time out. :0)
