Day 87 – March 28, 2019
Wanna get away? Today was an ideal day to fly. Since I am not a pilot, nor do I own an airplane, I must travel, vicariously, with those who are/do. I am ok with that, for the most part. Even with just one day left in this week, the weekend is well within reach, so that need to get away has subsided a bit. The weather has been showing more and more signs of spring with a full sun and some warmer air. Listening to a couple of amicable pilots chatter, the air up there is pretty smooth as well, “ideal conditions” I believe I heard one say. The only complaint I heard, as I weaseled my way a little closer to the conversation, was how the nicer weather meant a busier traffic pattern and a hefty price spike on jet fuel. Watching planes come and go is such a relaxing experience. I think it stems from living on an Air Force base for a number of years. I know I talked about it a few times last year and maybe twice already this year, but I seem to gravitate to one of the smaller airports near me when I find that my mind is a little stormy and needs a quick escape. I just know that, after spending some time observing, when I leave I am in a much better place then I was when I got there. Be it real or fantasy.
