Week In Review

I hope your week was productive and successful.  Here are some personal highlights from this week, and yes, it was spent with some awesome pilots and awesome times:

Living the pilot life...
  • Sunday, August 3rd: Met with my good friend and pilot Karlene Petitt - Author of the aviation mystery/thrillers "Flight For Control" and "Flight For Safety"  We had an awesome lunch and walkabout through the streets of NYC.  We met some interesting people en route.  Please stay tuned to her blog as she will be elaborating on this a bit more.  It was truly great to see her once again.







Touring Blarney Castle with the newlyweds.

  • Monday, August 4th: My friends from Cork, Ireland got married!!  A hearty congratulations and cheers to my friends Eoin O'Callaghan (PPL) and Siobhan Oliver (now Mr. & Mrs. O'Callaghan)!  You should have a life together filled with many blessings and great times and can't wait for my next visit to give you these wishes personally.  










  • Monday, August 4th: My student got a job!!!




  • Thursday, August 7th:  Celebrating my father's birthday...  He would have been 65 years old this year, however, his memory and spiritual presence is still very real and very here.  It was a day filled with Moody Blues, Clearance Clearwater Revival, and Gordon Lightfoot.  




  • Thursday: August 7th:  Attended a wedding of a couple from a local family on Long Island that I am close with.  It truly was a joyous occasion and I wish the newlyweds a beautiful life together filled with nothing but success, joyous occasions.  May the wings of your marriage spread and reach many spiritual levels....
My CFI and good friend Robert was in attendance.  





Wishing everyone a relaxing weekend ahead.  
What are your plans?

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."

FORD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
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…
