Can Angels Fly?

Objects without gravity live in space, or the dream of space in the mind. Haven't we all wanted to float free of limits. Move through a medium like fish or finches? In art I havetried not to let gravity interfere with my perception. Simone Weil wrote a book called GRAVITY AND GRACE. Gravity holds us down. Grace is buoyant. Angels can fly because, they take themselves lightly.
