I've told others that flying means I can escape my problems, literally rise above them. Even though this doens't erase the problem(s)... I think what I want is a reminder that things aren't always what they seem. A reminder that with a new perspective on things I can beat the problem.
I figure a bird's eyeview is certainly better than a "nose-deep in trouble" perspective. Don't you?
And you know, displaying flight would be the least destructive way to stick it to your enemies, to those who look down on you, who think you're a loser or incompetent. Flying itsn't like superstrength or heatvision or lazers or turning into a monster. You try to intimidate your enemies with those powers and you're definitely going to be perceived as a villain. Think about it.
But if I were to just shoot up into the SKY, far over your head in the blink of an eye...
...you'd just be left there looking UP to me, head in clouds but with your feet on the ground. Heh.
Flying is my favorite superpower. It's infinity. It's inspirtaion. It's fear. It's love.
It's whatever, for some whomever, makes one feel weightless and insurmountable.
And it's the one dream that unifies us all, good and bad, poor and rich, bound and free...
...whether wide awake, or sound asleep.
"When you can FLY you can do ANYTHING."
