Weekly Flyday Post VII
The wondrous concept of flight has caught the glimpse of many people in the past. I truly believe that it is so important to honor these people. Outside of aviation there has been several people that has inspired me to press forward just with everyday. I truly appreciate the fueling words and examples that these people have provided for not just the world, but to me.
One question that I would often ask myself is this: why am I so obsessed with the world of aviation?
Honestly, I do not know how someone cannot be in love with the sky. The heavens are such a wonderful place. Just the colors are such a wonderful aura that provides such a picturesque scene. Overtime I guess I can say that my favorite thing about the sky has to be the daily changes. There is not one day that goes by where the sky is the same. Everyday is different, just like how we are all unique. This world is the best place to be because of the fact that everything is so different. One person that has just recently inspired me both in the world of art and in the world of aviation is Sandra Burns. She is also a blogger that writes about her journey, but with art.
"I love both, but I find sunrise as more of an 'alone' thing, for inner thoughts and anticipation of a new day. Whereas, sunsets are to be enjoyed with others -it's nature saying congrats on surviving another day."
I love her quote here. This was in a response to one of my Instagram posts. The sunrises are indeed a symbol of a new day while the sunsets are a symbol of the end of a day. Isn't this just such a beautiful concept? We have to have clouds in order to have the most beautiful skies.
"There is a simple song that won’t make the rain stop, but it’ll sure turn a life around, and that’s aviation.Aviation is everything, it is my life. Trust in your heart, you’ll know."
Airplanes fly by everyday and they mostly go unnoticed. The skies are simply an aviator's home. A pilot has their eyes constantly towards the sky. Watching the clouds has always been a hobby of mine. I have long loved the cloudy days, more specifically the cumulonimbus clouds. It is always so satisfying to watch the clouds literally 'fly' and 'float' by. Even the Stratus clouds are quite fun to watch especially when they move so quickly and effortlessly through the space above.
Everyday the sky calls my name, not my callsign, but my real name. It is almost like my whole life calling and my whole life purpose. My mind and soul have almost felt this connection for my entire life, but only recently was it discovered. Once someone tastes the freedom of flight that torch will forever be ignited. The wind almost blew the clouds into my life finally prompting my aviation fascination.
,"What would my life be like without aviation? Well, I could never ever imagine my life without it. I believe I can say that life would be pretty dull, colorless, and mute. I love the skies and it has opened up the whole universe, and more. The sky is my home."
I’ve always sort of had a connection with aviation my whole life. I’d always love to swing on the swing in the afternoons. I’d pretend like I would touch the sky. My heart would lay heavy as I nearly hit the ground again. But, what exactly did this mean? Why did I like this so much?
The shear realization that aviation is where I belong was one of the greatest feelings ever. I love being able to experience the feeling of takeoff and landing in a seemingly impossible metal bird, flying through the clouds and meeting the sky. What is the best feeling in the world? Taking off in an airplane. What is the second best feeling in the world? Landing in an airplane. The heart fluttering feeling of takeoff is sure to capture one's soul. Look up little bird -fly!
What a wonderful post. Thanks for the mention, my friend. Fly Little Bird, be free!
