On Wings

If you read my other blog...and of course, who doesn't dare,  you will see that I am busy flying about these days.  So of course it has to be photos only.

Here are some others being busy along the same theme.

Within all of us is a varying amount of space lint and star dust, the residue from our creation.  most are too busy to notice it, but it is stronger in some than others . It is strongest in those who fly—and is responsible for an unconscious, subtle desire to slip into some wings and try for the elusive boundaries of our origin.  - K. O. Eckland,  Footprints on Cloud


You  haven't seen a tree until you’ve seen its shadow from the sky.
- Amelia Earhart

“When you're down, remember your triumphs. [...] Sometimes you get in trouble and crash. Other times: just a bumpy landing.”
― Ellyn Bache, The Art of Saying Goodbye: A Novel



“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.”
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

Be like the bird in flight . . .
pausing a while
on boughs too slight,
feels them give way beneath her,
yet sings,
knowing yet that she has wings.
- Victor Hugo (1802-1885),

Flying would be wonderful, if landing weren't mandatory.

Lovely shots!

Flight is a wonder in all these creatures. It gives them another dimension in life.

And who would guess the wisest quote comes from Peter Pan:)
