Who am I, and just what has prompted me to place my words out on
the web for all to see?
Maybe to see if anyone is interested?
Is this talk radio. . . with no one listening?
I hope to encourage
share the ride.
Sometimes I have lots of questions, and I will post them, not expecting
that there is an "answer" but that there may just be more
Sometimes I might just write to remember. I hope it is a nice private
and safe place to share my thoughts.
I exhibit extremes . . . in action, thought and mood.
I will avoid labels about myself.
Generally I have two speeds . . . Mach3 and dead stop. . .
know the edge of life... my mind records all the details of the
moments which choose to possess me - and from time to time I will
share them here.
And just what is it that possesses me?
Feeling the roar of a F-16 screaming overhead at an air show...
The reeds in a lake as the first rays of sun pierce the steam rising
on a cold October morning...
Downhill skiing - especially in the Rockies
Flying at night
giant surf in a wave runner
Standing on mountain tops.
Rollerblading along the lake shore
The wind - and the sun.
Sharing one of those moments with a child... who also "knows"
the moment... (age 5 - while jumping waves in Lake Michigan) "Dad,
this is too much fun to be real"
Mine are priceless... So why are 15 year olds on the street who
say.. "I have not one single good memory from my childhood"
(Heard one morning on TV show at the gym)....alone and on the street...
Tell a kid you love them today.
I have also known moments of despair - but those I may choose to
And the name? Why the name?
I am a pilot. I flew airplanes by myself before my parents would
allow me to take the car out alone. Often times I go out to the
airport at night, and I practice, and sometimes I just climb and
climb and watch the stars.
Come with me, and I'll share the ride.
