The Flying Yogi

I have always been a lover of all things flight, far before the days where I took up skydiving { 20 + years ago }. Even as a child I dreamed of travelling the skies in an airplane, taking up the helm as perhaps the pilot-in-command. Or as a flight attendant … their lives always […]

New Years in Zephyrhills

After a day of jumping with our New York skydiving friends, I was whisked away in an RV6 aerobatic home-built plane, twirling around the skies performing barrel rolls and loop-de-loops with ’Spoon’, a resident pilot friend also from NY. What a way to catch sunset on the last day of the year!

No excuses

In the 19+ years that I have been sport parachuting, I hear people come up with reasons of why NOT to skydive. “Never, in a million years”; “Over my dead body’; “It’s too dangerous”; “I’m afraid of heights”; “It’s not the right time to jump”; “I’m too afraid to die”; “What if the parachute doesn’t […]

4-Wheeling on the Outer Banks

What a way to start a week of adventure on the Outer Banks! slaDE and I were in pursuit of finding the Wild Horses of Currituck County. We were super excited to explore Corolla and the surrounding area, 4 wheeling on the beach in search of hidden treasures. Today, unlike Sunday afternoon, we were prepared […]

The Gift of Flight

For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return. Quotation of Leonardo Da Vinci

Flight is a huge part of my life and has been for over 19 years (for those who know me, you’d never […]

Weekend fuN!

It was a gorgeous weekend, with unending blue skies and fabulous skydives! I managed to fly in the right seat of the Twin Otter twice at Skydive Burnaby, and both times were reminiscent of the days when I would fly as co-pilot with my dear friend Randy Goken. lucky girl was I! The views of […]

Awakening.

Back in the land of the online living.

Away for 7 days, and much longer from the blog.

So much to share! In due time.

But now it’s time to count the clouds I’ve danced upon, singing swooping melodies of body flight dreams.

Ah, hoping sleep comes quick to me tonight ….

Tears of Sadness

At 2:20pm today, my dear friends at Frontier Skydivers were in a horrific plane crash carrying a total of 6 people. On takeoff, at 300 feet (end of the runway, surrounded by tall trees), the door on the Cessna 185 popped open and a skydiver onboard lunged to close it. Unfortunately, the plane was uncontrollable […]

Back to summer camp

I haven’t been to summer camp in many many years. But memories of those times are priceless.

As was this weekend’s camp. However, you see, this wasn’t your average weekend getaway.Rather, both slaDE and I enrolled in Doug Forth’s 16 way Camp. Yes, that’s correct. A camp for skydivers wanting to learn the subtleties […]

Flight ... it's an Attitude

For me this past week, returning to Frontier was an emotional state of coming home. Arriving with a different mindset than from my last abrupt departure of flight. A walk down memory lane, a throw back to both the familiar and the pain, the gifts given to me and to my family of friends, both […]
