Today concluded the longest break I’ve taken from hang gliding since my first flight with my dad in 1988.

My last flight before the break was August 17, and I had my left shoulder surgically reconstructed the next day.  Which means I went 4 1/2 months!


Today was “just” a sled ride… but with my perspective, I have to say the ability to launch into the sky with just a few steps, cruise around effortlessly, and end the flight with a graceful return to those same feet that started me going, but a long ways away from where they last touched Earth…

It’s a stunning privilege we enjoy, to say the very least!

And now I’m back, refocused and invigorated more than ever!  Let’s FLY!
