Believe it or not, this photo was not taken in Hong Kong. This photo was actually shot at the lake on a beautiful evening in Flushing-Meadows Corona Park here in the Queens section of NYC.
It was taken during a peaceful evening in the park where I was able to de-stress. This week was nothing but stress on so many levels and I am looking forward to the weekend were I will be taking to the virtual skies once again in the Boeing 777-300ER. Hong Kong-JFK. It was only fitting when I saw this visual at the park, as my flying computer had been based in virtual Hong Kong for the past week and now it's time to make the long journey back home.
I also want to thank two very special pilots who I am honored to have in my life and who shall remain nameless. They devoted their time to help me de-stress during this troublesome week. The first pilot, Alpha Pilot, devoted his time to have me over not only for MooShu Beef and an Egg Drop Wonton combo soup, but an awesome jam session with a strobe light- colored light show listening to the best music, knowing which songs I wanted to hear without me having to say a word. Not to mention the camping trips in the backyard. The sprinkler system added water/rain storm effect to the experience and was very relaxing.
The other pilot, Bravo Pilot, who is actually headed to Hong Kong next week, said one of the kindest things to me in an e-mail today, "I really appreciate you in my life!"
I must say, I appreciate both of these pilots in my life. Only if they could realize how much better they made my week by their random acts of kindness. These two pilots are a shining example that by giving the most simple and random act of kindness can be and mean a big deal in a person's life. You are my tail winds and the wind beneath my wings/wingflex.
What random act of kindness have you done lately? This question is for everyone but focused on NYers...
Have a great weekend!!
Only blue skies and tail winds over the North Pole.
