… birds have feathers and motorgliders feather their propellers … I took this shot after an afternoon of soaring and was on my way back to the airport in Sedona … visible on the middle left of the photo about mid image. Behind the feathered prop is Oak Creek Canyon , to the left of it is Wilson Mountain, and then the canyon gaps leading into Long Canyon. Oak Creek runs along the base of Airport Mesa and you kind of make out the green ribbon on either side of the creek.
A good day today and tomorrow I go in for my two week exam and expecting a good review. PT was good today and the “angle” was 120 which at day 13 is very good. I continue to force rest and doing nothing … it seems to be paying off … lots of PT exercise, but everything else is on hold.
I truly appreciate all of the kind and good wishes and prayers you are sending my way … it helps and in case I do not get a chance to reply to everyone I want you to know how much it is appreciated.
I heard from a friend who is recuperating from injuries in a fall from his horse … he mentioned something about old cowboys and young horses not going together very well. I sent him a line from Desiderata … “Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth”. This is a lesson I find myself working on continuously.
Have a beautiful day today … it is always your choice.
