...she walked in through the out door.
the little airmaid
In early childhood I was able to fly. At stairhead I closed my eyes and when I opened them again I stood downstairs. Sometimes I opened my eyes during the flight and saw myself floating in the air, above the dark and narrow stairs of our small house. I was never afraid and thought that everyone could do this. But adults and also other children where alienated when I mentioned it and so I kept silent.

I was a weird, disturbing child and learnt to hide my traits. Because I want to belong, to be more like others, even if I have to clip my wings. I cut them off, but never learnt to walk properly.

Verblüffend, aber tatsächlich kannte ich damals nur den Weg hinab, auf diese Weise. Und ja, es ist an der Zeit sich aufzuschwingen.
