Here's a good thing about that sorta pissy observation - I never really wanted to die inside an airplane and I have significantly decreased the odds of that happening for me. Except I just remembered something important - Gliding is really cool. I can almost hear the sound of the air curling around the fuselage, it is mesmerizing. I can almost make a commitment to looking into the local gliding clubs. That would be good for me. I may be able to overcome my shyness in support of that.
I noticed that it has been a long time since the last entry here. December was spent preparing for a visit from all five of our kids. It was really great having all of them home, sleeping under the same roof, for what will be quite rare in the years ahead.
|Three, Four, Two, Five and One|
This wasn't the best of the batch of pictures of them together, but I like this one because it"s a picture of patience by my sons for the fun their sisters were having. There is an 18 sec vid of Three skipping a stone which will become a treasured memory of mine. I haven't really sorted through all our pictures yet - Five said she would create a photo book of our time together. I would love that.
More shortly. I'm going to get back to journaling more often.
Happy New Year! I'm looking forward to it. 2017 was a good one.
