My best dreams are levitating ones. Even as a kid I had them, often very vivid, so that when I woke up I flapped my arms to see if I still could do it. Alas, I was subject to gravity!
I never flew higher than chimneys. Now I just use google maps!
But I also sometimes sit on a sort of go-cart, which isn't really there, just me, and happily glide along roads and footpaths over obstacles. That is when I have successfully completed something. Then I am as free as a bird.
I wish you good luck and fortune with your book. There are so many books out there now, it must be very, very hard to compete with them all, but with all your u-tube talks I would think you would be successful!
