Standing on the edge of the mountain at the Carnifex Ferry Overlook and gazing down to the Gauley River certainly gives me the feeling of flight. I’ve written before that as a child I would open up my jacket and pretend that I could catch the wind and sail like a kite. But of course the fantasy was decades before wing suits and the jet pack was in its infancy. But call of the horizon was strong and in my childhood dreams were plans of paper hang gliders and trash bags modified to become hot air balloons. Little did I know that I would live to see these things become more of a reality. Well, maybe not the trash bags but helium balloons and lawn chairs were close enough to count. For now I’ll have to settle for looking out over the edge of a cliff and feeling the wind on my face and perhaps opening a jacket to catch the wind when nobody is looking to see a fullgrown man pretend to fly. And of course in my dreams I’ll build all kinds of crazy contraptions in order to get airborne. In fact I think it’s time to go work on that now. Good night friends, be blessed and maybe even catch the wind in your dreams tonight.
