“The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors who… looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space… on the infinite highway of the air.” ~ Wilbur Wright
How can we – humans – look at the birds soaring above and not yearn to fly? It’s an obvious desire, I think, even for those of us with vertigo! I imagine the longing to share the freedom of the skies with the birds is what motivated the inventors of hot air balloons, airships and planes (including Wilbur Wright), giving rise to the ease of global travel today.
