    Artwork looks Disney-ish.

    Nice artwork.
    If only lemmings had wings.

    A few weeks ago I saw a PBS program about condors. A young female was reluctant to leave the cliff for her first flight. The parents were clearly impatient, and the male just pushed the young one off into space. He took off after and guided her for a few hours until she had confidence.

    Earth forms are fractal upward and downward. How far upward and downward does Earth creature behavior extend?

    It is confined to the atmosphere of our planet.

    Love the artwork too. I miss old fashioned Disney art. Hate the computer stuff.

    Humans have wings, they’re just attached to something called an airplane. Darn tricky things to learn to fly but very entertaining none the less.

    I love this strip, the story is like the artwork, simple and beautiful at the same time.

    It’s obviously the subject of much scientific and literary speculation. Can we ever imagine freely enough?

    Humans looked upon the birds and wished they too could fly.
    So they thought a while – and they did.

    Lemmings don’t normally jump off cliffs. They don’t even rarely jump off cliffs. Nature myth, possibly stated by Walt Disney in his film “White Wilderness”.

    I once read a science fiction story, I think “Staras Flonderans”, about some graceful interstellar beings watching us “flounder to the stars” in spaceships. So, we flounder through the skies in airplanes. Maybe not hang gliders, tho’.

    Okay you could argue that I floundered a lot in my private pilot days, but I dare you to say that Bob Hoover, Bobby Younkin and Patty Wagstaff floundered.

    “In to distance….a ribbon of black….stretched to the point….of no turning back.”
    “Condition grounded…but determined to try.”
    “Can’t keep my mind from the circling skies….tongue tied and twisted….just an earth bound misfit……I.”
    One of the Floyd’s good songs.
