What a lovely and fanciful piece, D Abboh — I can see you and your children launching paper planes into the sunlight.

I know your piece is not related to the monetary changes here on Medium (or is it?) but I find myself comparing it to my Medium experience in the past couple of weeks as I learned that my loving work here was a paper plane, beautiful and fun but essentially useless for travel. Days have been spent in evaluating options and coming to the conclusion that my focus must be on my regular work and Medium will be returned to the hobby category.

A paper plane won’t get me where I need to go.

Hugs to you and your children — send a plane into the light for me ♥

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
