Such gorgeous weather this weekend, clear blue skies, no wind, sunbathing temperatures.
But even without checking the weather forecast yesterday I had a strong feeling it wouldn’t be a flying day.
So often with flying, the grey uninspiring days are the ones which actually make good flying – where the clouds are just a little higher than they look from the ground, where there’s a light breeze and the air is clear so that you can see for miles.
And then there are the times that it’s drizzling below a low layer of cloud, but bright, glorious sunshine above.
So, yesterday it was a beautiful, late spring day. A little misty at ground level, but just not flyable – the visibility was simply awful 😦
As so often in life, appearances can be deceptive, and it often pays to look below the surface to what’s really going on. It’s so easy to focus on the glitz & glitter, without seeing the things which are really important.
But as in life as in flying, it’s important to make the extra effort to think about what’s really there and what really matters. To take the time to talk to people, to get on their wavelength, and to find out what really makes them tick.
I really appreciate the people who’ve made the effort to find out what makes me tick* after all… (*not sure that’s the best word for what I’m thinking right now, but forgive me, it’s still early xx)
And don’t forget, in the words of the great Billy Connolly ‘There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing, so get yourself a sexy raincoat and live a little’ *heads off to find PVC mac – and possibly matching skirt* 😉
