When I was a kid I loved lying on the ground watching clouds, planes, birds and stars. We lived sort of near Idlewild [now JFK] so planes have been part of my life forever.
Now I live near PDX and watch a very different assortment of planes – colorful jets and Air Force F-15s – but as I am also on water, I see herons, osprey, eagles, etc.
They all share my sky.
No matter how old I get, I will always be a kid watching my sky – it's my way of growing older better.
