RenaissanceWoman


I am discovering myself, and life one day at a time.

Dad was a radioman, rear gunner in a WW2 torpedo plane.

I’m starting to scan his photos he took from the back of the plane. He was part of the Pacific Campaign. You can see explosions below, and the wing of the plane.

No sleep, a long day of work, and now that I’ve spent the last two hours watching demo reels from different aerial filming companies, I’ve given myself a bad case of vertigo. I’ve now run into several walls, a couch and the kitchen counter.

We read five words on the first page of a really good novel and we begin to forget that we are reading printed words on a page; we begin to see images.
— John Gardner (via booksandhotchocolate)

This is so very true. You actually step into the story. Thanks.
