Against the wind

So I am alive, though it has been a while since I haven't been writing here. It was due to some unexpected and not so good experiences I have had in the beginning of this year. But I am back. It has been difficult, but I have managed to go through a concentrated string of events that have left some trails on my soul (and body).

And for a while they just stay there, in the air, waving the wings and nothing happens, they don't move a bit. Until the wind gets weaker or it changes the stream... so the birds can continue to fly. But the best moment is when the birds are just there...
