In the book Gift of Wings, Richard Bach writes about the people who look up to the sky to watch airplanes, people who slow down when driving past airports. He says,
“If you act this way, it’s possible that in flight you’ll find much to learn of yourself and of the path of your life on this planet.”
Of course, he’s right. Gentle words reminding us that the sky is a calling. A higher pursuit of man.
And the sky, like the wilderness or the sea, requires our constant application and respect.
