He takes a long breath.  And lets it out.  It will be a long voyage.  All the longer because he has waited.  He closes his eyes, thinks about the home that awaits him, about the fruit of the journey.  Then his thoughts get shattered.  He thinks of the openness and loneliness and ugly freedom.  Thunder and cold.  Hunger and water.  Fear and pain.  All alone.  But he remembers friend Wind.  The friend he's ignored for too long.  And then he plunges in to an open sky.
