You Have Earned Your Wings!

Birds are the last surviving dinosaurs.
A bird NOT flying

Dear Har-old,

Chinese author Lin Yutang said, “No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.”

You have been having this recurring dream that you could fly BUT your feet aren’t too far from the ground.

What the hell are you scared of?!

The power lines???

You know what this reminds me of?

The world’s most boring iPhone.

You had a iPhone for over two years without a single app on it. Without a single app.

Friends say you have it to say you have it.

Your history of not pushing things to its limit; of not allowing things to live up to its potential; of not taking advantage of your gifts.

Free as a bird. Why you think people say that?

Because flying IS freedom.

And the longer you stay your ass on that ground or even close to the ground, the tighter those cuffs on your ankle become … squeeze!

Your ability to fly is your money, your library of books, your mind, the Yeebizan, your passion and determination, your persistence, your enthusiasm and everything else you have that is great.

Do not be the model on the runway; be the plane.

Har-old, you have earned your wings!

Futuristically yours,

Har+new
