I am at loss for words at the moment. Life takes unexpected turns and to say the least this week I have bared witness to this ultimate truth.
Perhaps you have an old friend you haven't spoken to in awhile. No good reason why perhaps only because you are consumed with the day to day drama of your own life. You mean well. You intend to reconnect but haven't. What are you waiting for?
I found this poem in the most unlikely place and decided to share an excerpt........
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
Be on the watch.
There are ways out.
There is a light somewhere.
it may not be much light
but it beats the darkness.
Be on the watch.
The gods will offer you chances.
You can't beat death
but you can beat death in life, sometimes.
And the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
Your life is your life.
Know it while you have it.
You are marvelous.
The gods wait to delight in you.
Charles Bukowski's (Part of the poem titled "The Laughing Heart" )
Riding the Dhoni is pretty routine here. On my way out to the airport one day I snapped this one. The colour of the water here is something else.
A pre-dawn moment at the seaplane base. A long exposure proving a cool effect for the lights on the dock.
If I could only insert some sound! A very noisy operation!
One of our executive interior aircraft landing in Male'
Singapore Airlines on final approach. Loaded with tourisst who I am sure are more than a little eager to check out the Maldives!
A view of the Capital City Male about an hour before sunset.
Male International Airport.
I never tire of this view!
It as if the Atoll goes on forever.
On certain days you can see right to the horizon.
Thanks for stopping by. If I can leave you with one thought it would be this, know someone you haven't seen or talked to in awhile call or write them and tell them how you feel. Sometimes you run of time and time is irreplaceable.
Until the next time.
Rob, one of the barefoot pilots.
