Harry Potter Flying Broomstick
If I Only Could - I Surely Would
The Flying Broomstick
Here we have a broom scientifically deemed flyable by the the staff of Hogwarts Academy. And if they do not know what they are talking about, then who does? Academia, especially the witch specialty version, knows vision and worth when it appears before them. And when it flies before them. What a wondrous thing Harry Potter's broom is. When I see a broom with foot holds, I instinctively want to climb on board, set my GPS, and fly away.

Perfect For Commuting
Harry Potter is famous for making boy witches popular, as they absolutely should be. Although the historical lore says that witches can be boys or girls, the modern view tends to view witchery as a female oriented happening. Well, witchcraft and flying too is not just for girls only. I am sure that boys make fantastic witches, probably just as good as girls, though certainly not better.
Dreams Of Flying
Since ancient times people have been gazing up into the sky and dreaming of flying. Airplanes do not quite do the trick since you can not feel the wind in your hair. It should be like riding a bike, only up in the sky, and way off the ground, and way off the beaten track. Harry's broom is perfect; it sways, it swoops, and it circles. It is an activity perfectly suited to the witchy mystique and to me. When the moon is full and it is Halloween, let the spirit take you and you can believe in magic. Maybe then you will be able to fly too.
