The Plane! The Plane!

 I was sitting on my back deck passing the time. I tried to do some sketching, this is the bag Jean made for me. What a wonderful memory! I just didn't have the patience or the mind set, or motivation. I used to sketch when I visited my clients and there was a lull in conversation. 

I had my first client Wednesday, since my client of three years died during COVID. We had the girls during March 2020, and I couldn't go back to visiting her. There is no closure. It is difficult.

I drove into a park, as I was trying to do the speed limit, and everyone else wanted to go faster. I let a line of cars pass me. It was a lovely view through the window.

There is a lot more air traffic, as the world ramps up again. Both large planes, jets, and private planes. Sadly, Ontario had 2 dead at a private Port Hope airport

This was a Buccaneer.

It is a fun challenge trying to film them!

One dude was doing a freefall. I called red roller. He did a roll – it was a bit loopy!

A friend my age, here in NZ, calls it " I can't be bothered syndrome" !!! I have the same symptoms, look at something interesting, then have no motivation to continue. The new project of bookbinding must surely get some quality time soon. I had forgotten about the initial on your bag, glad to see it is still holding together. You will get back to sketching Jenn, maybe when you are out and about on a drive.

Your plane shots are better than anything I have ever achieved. Just thinking about a roll in a plane makes my tummy turn. I am a wimp.

I was up in Rockcliffe a few days back to visit the Aviation Museum.

I have found the lack of closure with my own caregivers very difficult.

You know that I have a weakness for small airplanes on floats. I even road in the boat once. I forget what it was called.

First, I'm loving that new blog banner. Second, I am loving how you took videos of those planes. You were certainly in the right place at the right time.

That must have been so much fun to watch. Freefall? Wow!

I love that little bag. I don't think I ever knew what you "did" that had clients! I'm a Covid-and-beyond follower! The videos are nice and that had to be fun!
