The Chariot

Timeless motion of my birds’ beating wings told me, “We are the chariot”.

The bird is able to fly by beating his wings back and forth, around and around. Flight is something man has long dreamed of. We do it today in big mechanical birds – jets – but they can’t compare to the humble bird. Why does beating one’s wings backwards move one forward? Why does a bird not fly one beat forward, one beat back? The bird knows that this beating will get him where he wants to go.
He can also beat his wings wildly and go nowhere. Knowing where to go is one thing. You have to want to go there, too.
