Can Angels Fly?

RIPE, painting by Steven E. Counsell (from his visionary art book titled ILLUMINATIONS The Geography of the Imagination, pages

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 have tried 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.
