    A Place I Yearn For Now...

    I'm wishing to be in a place... That is sunny...yet cold,perhaps an autumn noon... By the harbor... Sitting on a bench there... With the salty wind whipping at my face... As I pull my muffler higher to cover my cold pink cheeks... I will be watching the day go by slowly...but...

    Catching Up With Friends

    Today I got a chance to talk to an old flying buddy from page AZ. It was nice to talk about flying with someone that understands that passion. We even talked about me coming back out west to visit. This really lifted my spirits.
