A Lot To Look Forward To

The forecast for NYC today and tomorrow is rain however that will not stop me from enjoying the weekend.

This week has been productive as I was able to get a venue for our "Flight For Celebration" event on November 10th, 2012 and things are moving a long nicely. The emotions are getting more and more excited; the seconds getting closer. I must admit, I am a little nervous as this is the first event my website is hosting, however, the name of the game is fun. And I am planning on having it along with our guests.

I will be hosting a few others at this lively event,  however, I have one extra seat for one more person and I really want to give that paid seat to someone who will be in NYC that weekend. And it could be you. Please click on the FFC CONTEST tab above for more information. And yes, you will get the chance to meet Karlene.

As for this weekend, it's time to bring the week in for a landing and recharge those batteries. And refuel the tanks. But one thing is for sure, my head will always be aimed into the skies and looking forward.


  1. I have a lot to look forward to too! You know, sometimes I think that's all people need to have hope. Hope for fun. Excitement. New job. New rating. Degree. As along as we always have something... we have a reason to keep going.

    Would you email me a guest post for the invite you're extending? I'll put it on my blog Monday! This is a great motivation.

  2. Karlene, yes - hope for something in itself is something to life for and after discussing with my co-captain we are planning something very special for you!!

    I wanted to clarify before I send something to you for your Monday motivation post - what should I include in the guest post? I will try and get this put ASAP! Thank you so much!!

    Getting even more excited!

    1. Hi Jeremy... just a little delayed in emails. It was tough to get on in Iowa City. Cedar Rapids... much easier. How about an invitation for what you're doing and where. I'll write the rest. Thanks!

    2. Karlene, I am glad that you finally made it safely to your destination. Enjoy your time there and hopefully we'll both get some rest. There is always hope for something! Still looking forward!

    3. Resting before the flight home and the crazy schedule begins. Until then...and always... enjoying this journey!

"Understanding Air France 447"
by  Bill Palmer


Looking into the eye's of the passenger profile photos of some of those on board after having read this book, I could never begin to understand what was going through their minds during their final thoughts and moments alive on aboard Air France flight 447.

A 26 year old doctor from Ireland, an 11 year old student from the United Kingdom, 29 year old Brazi…

Flight For Sanity

"While it’s tempting to play it safe, the more we’re willing to risk, the more alive we are. In the end, what we regret most are the chances we never took."

Grand Rapids, Michigan
April, 2017

With seconds to go, I was making a mad dash down the concourse.  Of course my gate had to be the last one at the end.  The chances of me making the next flight out after to the concrete jungle were growing very slim.  In the distance, I could hear a small boy ask his mom, "Why is that man running?"  Barely hearing anything over the sounds of rushing blood and adrenaline, I heard the mother explain that I was running to catch a plane.
As I ran, I flew into my subconscious and thought about the times where I wish I had ran towards something, risking everything valuable in life because of something I believe in, instead running of away from something due to fear of how bad it would impact my life.   Risks that were worth taking, that I never…

The Gift of Giving

"In realizing the gifts..I was born with, I.. realize.. by sharing them - I'm gifting a part of myself for all humanity to share."  - Eleesha

This happens to be one of my favorite quotes from Eleesha, because we live in a world of give and take.  As much as I feel guilty of taking from others, I try and replace that with giving all my time and talent that I have to offer.   
As prepare to bring Chapter 39 to a close, and prepare to start writing Chapter 40 of my life today at 2:10 p.m. EST, I remember this purpose quoted above, to keep sharing what I have to offer for others even more so - like I have been for so long.  I am very thankful to have so many gifts that have been given to me, such as 
FamilyFriendsTalentsThe ability to have a moral conscience to discern right from wrong.
and last but certainly not, least - what I, and what most if not, all of us take for granted - 
The ability to wake up each morning and taking our first breath of the day.  To realize that we ar…
