The weather has been a bit "Easty" lately, so I haven't been flying much.  I find that I think about flying a lot when I go through a dry spell, like this.  I even had a paraglider dream last night - which never happens when I'm flying regularly.  Here's a video that describes what I'm going through very well.

It's title is "Rush Hour Dream."

While I'm at it, the PPic widget (lower right of this blog) had one of the most serene and beautiful shots recently. . . Click on photo for larger version.
