Flying a Canoe

July 3, 2007

A canoe can easily fly if the weather is perfect. When sky and water become indistinguishable, peaceful gliding on the surface of a lake is as close to flying as any human has ever come. Look up or down and there are sparse, stringy clouds in endless blue sky. Look to the sides, front or back and there are trees in midair, harmoniously mirrored on the tops and bottoms of islands in the sky.
