Ahhh…much better. The generic look’s gone and I’m getting this arranged more to my liking. I’m spreading the word to my online friends and my favorite communities, and with any luck as the old commercial said “they’ll tell two friends, and they’ll tell two friends, and so on, and so on…”
I got thinking about this whole nutty venture this morning, it’s a gorgeous day and I’d wheeled over to my regular spot a mile away to fly my ultra micro radio control T-28.
I took off and as soon as it was airborne I realized I wasn’t going to be flying much today since the air was unpleasantly choppy even though there was almost no wind. I flew for a few minutes with the plane jumping around, making uncommanded turns, and in general not having a good time. Rather than push my luck and court disaster, I landed the little machine and packed it up.
It struck me that this exercise was reminiscent of my life in general: it has often been turbulent, but exercising my better judgment and not doing anything impulsive or stupid in bad times has pretty much always gotten me what I need. Not necessarily what I want, but what I need to survive and accomplish the most important stuff in my life.
Maybe it’s hokey…but it’s been true for many years.
