Spirit has decided to take flight early in the morning. (This is her first time)
The night before, she calls up Body and Mind and discusses her plan at length
They bring in Doubt for consultation
So she packs all necessary items including a jet-pack
For one must always look at the possibility of failure
Then preens her feathers for a couple of hours
And mumbles prayers till dawn cracks
She wakes up late next morning
Spirit has now decided to put the plan away for next day.

Spirit takes flight. She flies.

I have said it before and I’ll say it again, growing up sucks. Most grownups complicate things. And my insistence on simplicity is mistaken for denial, or worse, innocence. Every few days someone announces that I lower my expectations from life. Balls to you, I say.
