colloquialism for flying, or rather floating, close to the ground stretched horizontally — like swimming face-down in shallow water; slow and quiet, it is a meditative practice: savor the smelly, intricate, life-rich stratum of moss, fungi, insects, glide silently over the fairy worlds or quiet waters, never disturb by touching or stepping: a zoom-in, slow-motion intake. In the eatfree population, infrequent grazing expeditions provide the diet of northern summer berries and wild fruit; for days on end, non-flying kids ride on their parents' backs: the “eating play” development stage recapitulates the ages of prehistoric gatherer and historic eater.
