Dreamt an old woman offered to teach me the secret to human flight if I just worked in her kitchen for a day. I knew she had the secret as I watched her float into the air to fly with the crows. I spent the next day sweeping and scrubbing and she told me what to do: Get a running start, jump, and land on your heels so that your moment carried you forward off your feet. When your weight transferred to the balls of your feet, jump again.
It took me a couple of tries before I noticed any results. Then I felt myself slightly buoyant. After a few more tries I was jumping over trees. Finally, after many attempts, I found myself floating effortlessly.
