Essence

My name is Midnight Raven.
My passion is Freedom.
I fly with the eagles and the ospreys.
I sail upon unfurled wings.
I feel the wind in my face
and laugh
and cry.
And in the presence of fear
I soar
higher and higher
farther and farther.
And exalt in the face of that fear.
I live
and I thrive
as I ride the mistral.
I am Midnight Raven.
And my essence is Freedom.

I can truly FEEL the freedom of soaring through the skies with your Raven, Dale:
the wind in my face, the view of the land spread out far below.
Thank you so much for taking me on this amazing journey xxx
