The Symphony of Flying
The word "Symphony" consists of two words, “sym" that means together, and “phons” that means sound.
In music, symphony is a piece, composed by 4 movements. The first movement has 2 themes. One of the themes is like a man, positive and strong. the other is like a woman, lyrical and delicate. The second movement is the highest strength of the composer. Third is the most joyful of the piece and the last movement contains imagination and skill.
Each symphony is made for a full orchestra. The full orchestra is a representation of a life that embraces all of its dimensions.
Every event in our lives is a symbol of an instrument. Instruments with particular tunes and sounds. Happiness, sorrow, failure, victory and success.
Each symphony can represent a figure. A figure in which the main theme is the story of successful people and how they flew. People with new thoughts and ideas that are looking for a new world full of flying. A long prelude of fighting with failure and hopelessness. The beautiful feeling of flying and the high-tide of reaching a goal, a dream. Together we can fulfill this belief of flying.
