:: Wanna Fly ::

Toni Morrison's Song of Solomon.
I have always remembered this part
When Guitar corrects Milkman about the peacock:

"He. That's a he.
The male is the only one got that tail full of jewelry.
Son of a bitch...
Too much tail.
All that jewelry weighs it down.
Like vanity.
Can't nobody fly with all that shit.

Wanna fly, you got to give up
The shit that weighs you down"

++++++

Do thoughts weigh one down as well?
Could one's life be happier with less thought?
