The Fliers of Gy

The Fliers of Gy – An Interplanary Tale
By Ursula K. Le Guin

“Flying is complete. It’s enough. I don’t know if you can understand. It’s one’s whole body, one’s whole self, up in the whole sky. On a clear day, in the sunlight, with everything lying there below, far away … Or in a high wind, in a storm – out over the sea, that’s where I like best to fly. Over the sea in stormy weather. When the fishing boats run for land, and you have it all to yourself, the sky full of rain and lightning, and the clouds under your wings. Once off Emer Cape I danced with the waterspouts … It takes everything to fly.”
