“For now he knew what Shalimar knew: If you surrendered to the air, you could ride it.”― Toni Morrison, Song of Solomon
Over at Collage Obsession, the theme this week is "I can Fly." I was doing some online digging and this young man's image really grabbed my attention, suggesting a less whimsical interpretation of the theme. I don't remember exactly how Song of Solomon bubbled up through my consciousness, but I'm glad it did - it puts everything here into the perfect context. If you haven't read it yet, do so, certainly.
