The first time it happened, I wasn't sure if I was supposed to take it literally. There are a lot of weird similes and metaphors in the story that seem to confuse the comparison rather than offer insight, and so I thought maybe the floating wasn't meant to be actually happening. It's symbolic of something, right? But then, maybe not. Magical realism, why do you always do this to me?
It's an interesting story alright.
