Why the Albatros?

The Albatros is probably the largest sea bird. It is very impressive, especially with its wings spread out, the span of the latter easily reaching over one meter. Its flight over the oceans is majestic, and can last many days, even months, and, some say, years.

Because it is so big, however, the Albatros has much difficulty taking off. To do so, it must basically « throw itself » off a sea-side cliff into open space. Its most clumsy take-off contrasts considerably with its magnificent flight. Therein lays the perfect analogy with the person reaching the term of their earthly existence. They must take off, and the latter can sometimes involve a certain loss of grace, but with a few feathers less in the process, they find them anew in their flight of eternal dimension.
