Click here to hear the author read his words:


I truly love this strangely wonderful woman but, when she tells me she doesn’t believe in gravity, I have to laugh.
I hug her and try to explain that it’s not a concept but a law of physics.
If you say so, she smiles her gentle smile, but if you can’t fly you’ll need to improvise.
I’m still shaking my head, all chuckles, when she takes my hand and we both float into the air.
In my astonishment I can hardly splutter out my questions as to how this is possible.
Just relax and enjoy the flight, she laughs, laws are made to be broken.

  3. Her name wasn’t Mary Poppins by any chance, was it?


  4. That would be wonderful and terrifying at the same time.

    I like this story, which reminds me of a painting by Marc Chagall, in which a couple is floating in the air.

    I would make sure not to let go of her hand.
