"More than anything else, the sensation [of flying] is one of perfect peace mingled with an excitement that strains every nerve to the utmost - if you can conceive of such a combination." - Wilbur Wright
"holy crap, i did it." - Husband
as long as i've know the Husband (back when he was a friend, then a boyfriend), he has wanted to fly.
his dad flew. his brother flies. and when you accused my Husband of having his head in the clouds, well, you weren't far off base, mister.
but that's another post.
he's gone after that FAA approval several times in his adult life. (you can read the extended version here.) the farthest he got was actual flying time.
he's back there again. he passed his test with a 93% accuracy.
i cannot tell you how bloody proud i am of him. i mean, really - how often in our all too-short lives to we actually get the chance to accomplish a life-long dream?
not often enough.
this is my boyo. my love. my life. and he's on his way to accomplish something he's always wanted to.
you go, boy. your dreams really are up in the clouds.
