  • This week I bought a fan and placed it on my balcony.

    Today, I sat on the balcony, turned the fan on and watched the sunrise over the hills. The moment the fan's soothing breeze crossed my face I was taken back to my childhood where I imagined I was a pilot.

    I had this little grey Phillips fan with controls for fan speed and heat/ cool on the airflow side. I would sit with the fan on the end of the bed and pretend I was a pilot soaring high above the world. I would watch sunrise and sunset and travel to far away places.
