A beautiful large eagle circled on the updraft in front of me as I looked out across the sunlit valley. How beautiful it soared, with wings outstretched, without effort.
Someone once asked me what animal I would be if I could choose, a frog perhaps? the answer was no, an Eagle. To soar like an eagle, as free as a bird. But what must it be like to be a fledgling eagle chick, when the time comes to leave the nest, to take a fateful drop from the nest or mountain ledge so high, without ever having flown before, to risk death…Would you be an eagle?
In the words of a music artist I am a fan of ‘In a world full of people only some want to fly – isn’t that Crazy!?
