Gnawing at bones

For me, gnawing at the flying bone includes reading all I can about being a pilot. And re-reading. Sure do learn a lot from re-reading the classics. “Pursue, keep up with, circle round and round your life as a dog does his master’s chaise. Do what you love. Know your own bone; gnaw at it, bury it, unearth it, and gnaw it still.” Quote from an 1848 letter, from Thoreau to Blake.

Tao Te Ching on microbursts

A strong wing does not blow all morning. A cloudburst does not last all day. The wind and rain are from Heaven and Earth and even these do not last long. How much less so the efforts of man? Lao Tzu Tao Te Ching Quote from Tao Te Ching: The New Translation from Tao Te Ching, The Definitive Edition, translation by Jonathan Star. Picture from the LA Times newspaper, it’s a presidential 747 from a year ago, the Obama’s trying to get to into Palm Springs. Ended up diverting to Riverside’s March ARB SaveSave
