i wanna fly like..
I don't even like flying in a commercial airplane, i feel like i have relinquished all control to some guy who may or may not have had too many cocktails at the airport bar. it's like getting into a large cab with hundreds of other people. i suspect it's similar to why i don't like movie theaters.
however, i did like the thrill of my first airplane ride in a small 12 passenger plane! it was terrifying in all the right ways for me! the fear was not of the flying, it was of the unknown. and i could see the pilot- he was sitting right in front of me. i am pretty sure he hadn't had a single cocktail that morning.
i wanna fly like colton. not the up in the air kind, the i went off the grid and exist only for my destined purposes flying! outlaw or criminal or folkhero, this kid is doing what he wants after being shat on by our world. every delusion is evident in his story. the mom who didn't raise him being interviewed, the friends who he left behind, but mostly a kid who , like most of us, is doing the best he can do with what he's been given. GO COLTON!
