Childhood Daydreams Of Flying Through The Gorge

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Tranquil Crossings 80521” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

Warm breezes ascend from the New River Gorge as I stand on the edge of the overlook in envy of the Hawks. They call it a Bird’s-eye view and I would agree with the exception that a bird could so easily catch the wind and force it to take him to any point on the horizon. I’ve mentioned before that as a child I would open my jacket and pretend that I was flying through this very canyon. That was one fantasy. The other was based a little more on science. A giant paper airplane! One that I could launch from this very spot and glide all the way to Fayetteville. Or beyond if the thermals were right. I could imagine myself leaning to one side or the other to control my craft. Maybe I would even do a loop or two around the New River Gorge Bridge before sailing off into parts unknown. In my imaginations I can feel the wind on my face as I wave to the people below. Eventually I would have to land but in a child’s mind it’s no big deal. I’d just land on a train and ride it back home. Never lose those childhood imaginations. Who knows, at the rate technology is going I very well could climb into a drone that looks like a giant paper airplane one day and ride the same winds as the hawks through the Gorge.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

Announcement 2.0

For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.

We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.

I want you to join my group on MeWe:
