Sailing is a story that was inspired as I flew over northeast Pennsylvania one morning, returning from Newark to Elmira. The plane seemed to be sailing along over a sea of clouds below, just brightening with the first light of a red summer sun. The photo and the subsequebt scan of this picture did no justice to the scene, so I have substituted four other sailing pictures.
The January sunrise just above the southeastern horizon almost guides the course home to Elmira from Rochester.

Just another flight. There is no shortage of splendid views.
This picture was taken the morning of December 26, 2003. Looking over the nose of the plane I am "sailing" home to celebrate Christmas, after being stranded in Rochester on the 25th by the flight schedule.
