Taking flight is an emotional act. It requires us to be vulnerable, courageous and demands our visibility, coming out of our cozy nests and safety of the thick of the trees. We risk exposure to predators bigger than us, forces of nature that can literally ruffle our feathers. We risk being misunderstood, judged…but we still do it. Taking flight is an act of survival. We adopt these metaphors that are rooted in the reflection of nature, visual acts that remind us of our humanity and our place in the natural order of things.
