“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
My recurring dream is far from a nightmare, thank god. The dream actually varies quite dramatically but the common element is flying. Well not flying so much as floating. As a kid, I used to dream that I was floating home from the bus stop, now I dream about floating in whichever city I happen to be living. I love the feeling of floating, feeling weightless, achieving the impossible, opening up a new path of human discovery.

I strive to find this same floating-like sensation in my awake life. "Let us all try to live so as to tread lightly on the earth," pronounce the Quakers. Like floating in my dreams, movement seems to be a recurring theme all around me. My mom was diagnosed with MS over 20 years ago. Since then, I have watched her ability to walk get more and more difficult.

Floating represents the solution to my mom's and the world's problems. If everyone could float, weightless and happy, through their days without having to endure harsh and heavy steps, we would all be better off. In my life, I will use every encounter I have to create in people this magical sense of floating.
