I am sorry for not blogging more these days. I've been incredibly busy and hardly home. I flew off to give a workshop the other day and started thinking about airplanes. When I first flew on a plane, I was sure that the plane landed with its back wheels first. It felt like that to me. The plane pulls you back into your seat as you land. It was years before I knew that that isn't how a plane lands at all. But I wonder about planes. I know they are pretty high off the ground just sitting on the run way. but how big are the wheels? What are they like? Do the wings actually move or just stay still? Do they look majestic when you see them flying or do they look awkward? Lots of questions I know. Thanks to those who spent such time telling me about birds and their flight. It was all fascinating.
