Seeing the future of flight in the eyes of a child.

I was at the Atlanta Airport when I sew this child with her Dad and she was so excited about the air planes and it made me think of all the hopes in dreams that we have when we are kids where the sky is the limit I think it reflects that part in all of us that still dreams of that far off place where are head is still in the clouds and yet there is the glass between her and the airplane, just like when we feel that separation between us and are dreams, that we think are unreachable, but there is still hope that maybe we can yet grow in knowledge to reach that dream.
