In my next life I aspire to be a bird. Able to travel anywhere, lord of all he surveys, fearless and free. He's comfortable on the land, weightless in the air, and sails over the water without a ship. Very few creatures hunt him, and he does not have the shy and nervous demeanor of prey. No, he is bold and superior and kingly. Clearly, there can be no creature more finely adapted to this Earth than a bird.
