Ever thought you could fly?

Have you ever dreamed you could fly?  I have many times, although not for many years.  I have very distinct memories of flight during my dreams, climbing to the top of a tree or other high place, stepping off and soaring away, flying high over tree tops and observing the terrain from above.  How I knew what it looked like from up there I don’t know.  I also have some memory of not taking flight, but instead free falling to the ground where I landed as if on a pillow, no pain, no hurt, just get up and do it again.

I was a pre-teen, maybe only 6 or 7, and it’s funny because I have very few other memories of my childhood, good or bad.  What does that say?  I actually became very proficient at dreaming and flight, scheduling the occurence of my flights almost at will, and a number of times I could go back the next night and continue my dream journey where i left off.

I can remember some of those things but have forgotten so many others in my past.  Who knows where that time has gone?  Will I ever find it again?  My Mom asks me if I remember seeing or doing certain things and I have little or no recollection, What will I remember in my old age.  Will I remember how I flew, and can I fly again?

    You know Skidaddy I believe that when we do get to that point in age when we can remember things as though it just happened to those things that we choose to forget. I like daydreaming of the good things in my life so that I feel like it just happened, seems a little juvenile I know but when I do remember it puts a smile on my face. I don’t have any children and can’t bear any but I don’t like that to be a reason for sadness so I remember when my husband and I bought our doggies and how now 10 years later we’ve seen how they aged from their color. I think it’s great you can remember flying. Keep your memory alive.
