Earlier this year a friend and champion went on an incredible road trip to fly kites for the people waiting in Leonora. The kids who are waiting there are real and they want to play. This second episode of BoatBird is dedicated to all children on a difficult journey. Read the first episode here.
…With his last strength, he tossed the boat atop his head and turned his beak from the scene. Would it still float? And how would he make his way to the little brave boat now that he could neither fly nor swim…? (He could not watch.)
The little boat stood.
Like a kite on the water.
And Boatbird realised he was holding onto the end of the line.
He was holding onto his future, and the future was tugging him.
