You know as the years go by we sometimes forget or neglect the things we enjoy the most (sometimes people included). I had a weekend here recently where I had the opportunity to enjoy two of the things I love. Flying and gymnastics. I got to go fly on a B-25 bomber. The ones that were featured in the movie Pearl Harbor as part of Doolittle’s Raiders. It was complete with a P-51 escort. What a trip! Later that weekend I had the chance to make it to the NCAA men’s gymnastics finals and relish in the show and the memories. It was a very important lesson in remembering to take time to do what you love. Smelling the roses comes in a myriad of flavors.
I don’t know if this would qualify as “things I love to do” unless you are generically referring to photography but this is the second time in my life I’ve found myself photographing tornados. The first time turned out to be on a roll of film I used to photograph the Hale-Bop comet as well. One roll of film with only a comet and a tornado on it….hmmmm what are the odds? At any rate I took these two in Cherokee OK in April 2012.
