….. towards floaty music for the night time car ride home:
‘I believe I can fly’
(squeeze for a kite)
The kite has been stuck up there since the end of last summer and has been there for all to see in the bare branches all winter. No one can get it down, although we did try. It has seen every sunrise from there ever since. So weighing the restraints of being stuck up there against sitting in a prize place; where it can play up there with the moon and the stars and even count cars; the kite can’t be that unhappy! So there it stays. We photograph it from time to time and hang it up on a white wall and compare leaves (or no leaves at all) and admire the blue against blue and change the colours generally. It has become a project; a piece of art outside the bathroom! Or, the kite can be seen from afar as a delightful sign post out on the road which shows everyone where we live near a pole. It still wishes it could fly though…..
(press to see the snail a bird and slime)
……and here’s another one who thinks it can fly, but who cannot so has decided to settle for sliding up glass. A snail. Its not the first time he has done this (he is well photographed but is not hanging on walls yet). If you have ‘squeezed’ for the bird you will see that the snail is flying higher than the bird on the line! Or at least it looks like that. The snail either believes he can fly or he is just an act, kidding everyone. Actually he is due to disappear ; when some other bird will fly at the window and eat him rather dramatically….
We all really wanted to believe that the snail could fly. Its seriously good fun to play really clever and funny tricks with the camera, when it rains and the house is full…Someone wanted to call him a UFO or maybe a flying owl but we all got stuck on calling him a snail, a snail who can fly although this one was brought down to earth as mentioned above fairly quickly……..
Little Pony was found in the bathroom, too late. And one pink sock was found just as the car left…… The moon, must have started to move, as fast as they were, just then…..

But remember to watch out for the big bird who will eat you if you keep sliding up glass.
