I cannot, for the life of me, manage to be up at the crack of dawn in Metro Manila! Ugh. Nothing seems to work either. My phone just gave up on me completely. The other one lost signal forever. Things leave me, it seems. But I’m determined to manage without a phone. For now, at least. 🙂 I’ve got a whole list of projects lined up and I have to be alert.
Also, today I got this sudden urge to learn a thing or two about flying airplanes. I blame it on Saint-Exupery publishing his thoughts about life and flying before getting lost in the desert. He saw something up there…a whole new world, I think. Or an old world seen through new eyes, I’m not sure.
Now I want to learn to fly a small plane. And maybe when I’m ready, I might fly to Egypt or Africa on a whim. How awesome is that? And you know what world, one eyed pilots exist! This was what made my day, actually! I read an aviation manual that described how people with singular vision (monocular, they say) CAN fly so long as they pass all other tests. Hmm, yay!
And in the spirit of flying, here’s my precious view of the afternoon from a window in St. Lukes and the sunset from Cubao:
