gettin' my ya-ya's out

Flying always does me right


Flying to LA (*yeaaa!*) yesterday, I’d had enough of packing and cleaning and whining and arranging and end-of-a-school year stress. I plugged my son into his movie. I pulled out my visual journal and I tuned in. Or, out, depending on your perspective. I played and breathed.
My man and I were at odds, totally out of sync, and he scolded me for using my paint pens, saying they smelled too much and can’t possibly be allowed on flights. I kept working, sticking my figurative middle finger in the air. This was my time.
Flying always does me right.

    What is amazing about this is that I too can fly. I thought it was just me but there is something about the configuration of my body which means I can actually fly. Quite fast and quite high as well. Taking copious amounts of hallucinogenic drugs also helps and I find enhances the entire experience. I fly sometimes to lands that I thought only exist in my mind, like Atlantis but on a cloud with a tantric display of different skies and planets held together with silken string pulled by baby unicorns. What impresses me is your ability to paint AND fly. Maybe it is because I am a man and cannot multi-task.
