Ability to turn into wind.

Concealed with some face paint and donned in a zombie costume. Maybe even put on my zombie voice. I would be safe since they would think I'm part of the mob, of course.

I would migrate to Utah, and in the process enlist team with unique talents including a marksman, a builder, a botanist, nurse, 2 really cool teenagers, and a native american storyteller, & i'd provide the comic relief. We'd hike to a very opportune cave that gets a maximum amount of sunlight, while being moderately difficult to invade. Scratch that. We'd head for a heavily fortifiable old native american cliff dwelling with ready access to clean fresh mountain spring water. The surrounding area would be forest with med to large game, the climate would allow us to grow food, while the cave would have a storage room to stock the food over the winter. During which i would go into deep meditation and learn to speak with bears, whom we would form a symbiotic relationship with by providing them with seasoned cooked meat w/veggies as well as tummy rubs (Bears value tummy rubs as among the highest forms of respect one creature can give another, because tummy rubs expose bears to vulnerability to which, it takes much trust to rub a grizzly bear tummy). The chief, Shasta, and I would share much over discussions about culture, philosophy, and the nature of the universe. The bears would provide protection for us when we needed and they would patrol our distant borders immune to the virus that cause the zombie apocalypse (origination of the virus linked to Red Bull #22). We would live long fruitful lives in harmony with nature, and with the help of a local library have all the means to explore literary works and other forms of human expression that we pushed aside during the technological age, thus getting back to the basics of art, literature, science, math, philosophy, and tummy rubs.

I hope you might send these books to New Zealand!! My powers would have to do with food! I could turn an old sausage into a magnificent feast for six, or the last 3 slices of bread into a 3 course meal, all with no dirty dishes to wash!!
