Our dreams

I could fly When I was a child i just lifted my legs and flew every night, it was as natural as my breath. Now my son flys high and feels the air rush past as he smiles and he tells me “Dad in my dreams i can fly” and i say then hold on tight son because when i grew up i forgot how to fly high like you.

But hay hoy theres allways tomorrow.

    It’s a strange experience. I used to be able to fly over the earth with my bed.

    My mom still dreams she’s flying, and so do I… It’s so sad to wake up and realize I can’t fly.
