The humidity and stench were overwhelming, but I kept thinking and reminding the children that it was going to be all worth it. I had only seen a few familiar faces, but most of them I had never seen before in my life. Before the first night ended, Maribel and the children had made a few friends on the ship. It was a good way to make the voyage go by faster, for when they were at play everything seemed to go faster.
I remember the first time I flew in an airplane. My eight-year-old self looked out the window of the terminal I was taking off from, astounded by the large size of the vehicle. Worried, I thought to myself how could something that big fly with so many people? Yet, as the plane took off my worries became excitement. Not only was this my first flight, this was the event that marked the start of my new life, my takeoff from Vietnam to America.
Before I sat on the plane to leave, I knew that this journey was going to have lousy services; from cramped seats in economy to tasteless, unappetizing, processed food and air hostesses that hover over your head with an intended fake smile.
He continued scouting out the window, the face haunting his thoughts. The surprising realism didn’t perplex him; it was the stare. He couldn't shake the feeling there’d been intelligence behind the eyes. Too bad he didn't get a photo. She was lost forever. He did have the next best thing, though—his notebook. He'd been writing and drawing stuff in it for the last couple of years. He could draw Cloud Girl and show it to his mom when she woke up.

Clouds are often associated with the proposal of free thinking; which is what sleeping is presumably thought to be. During Mia Hall’s out-of-body-experience, she contemplates over the idea of staying alive to live her life as an orphan, or leaving to succumb to the fate her family had no choice of enduring. As Mia deciphers over the choice of life or death, she declares that; “sleep would be so welcome -- a warm blanket to erase everything else” (Forman, 278). A cloud is a symbol of sleep, and contains the element that Mia’s loved ones fear throughout the hours of her coma. Mia has a choice to join her body once again, or to turn into the light and have a rendezvous with the clouds which she desperately wants to meet.
Her previous careers were no comparison to the joy she felt when she was flying. Amelia found a woman to teach her to fly at Kinner Airfield; her name was Neta Snook. Amelia agreed to pay one dollar per minute. To pay for her lessons, Amelia got a clerk’s job at a nearby telephone company. Eventually, Amelia and Neta became good friends; Neta was only one year older than Amelia. Neta soon called Amelia a “natural,” realizing Amelia’s natural talent. Amelia was dedicated to aviation, and worked on her skills every chance she could. Amelia flew when the weather was good, and studied planes when the weather was bad. She learned how to repair airplanes, and in the summer of her 24th birthday, Amelia’s mother and sister bought her an airplane, which she painted yellow and called the Canary. On December 15, 1921, Amelia passed her license test, and by 1922, she could fly solo. Around that time, Neta had to give up flying due to marriage; exactly what Amelia did not want to happen to herself. Amelia had to find a new instructor; his name was Monte Montijo. He flew in the army and worked as a stunt flyer in movies. He taught Amelia tricks and encouraged her to set new records. Amelia’s life was soaring to new heights; she started flying in airshows, and she soon set the record at that time for flying the highest at a height of 14,000ft. With all this success in her career, her family life was taking
