Glimpses of the Future, Whispers of the Past.




Yesterday was Master J's first "Training in Flight" lesson at a regional airport. Once well up in the air he was given the controls for a while before handing back to the instructor for landing.




All that hard schoolwork has to be for something worthwhile! My husband loved being there to see him fly, I'm pleased I sent him with a camera!




"A thing of beauty is a joy forever" John Keats. 







Made by a friendly dressmaker, I designed my wedding dress, bought the fabrics, lace and beads, and hand-beaded the lace.  I still consider it beautiful, like our marriage, after 22 years.

Look at the smile on your Master J's face - completely chuffed. Hope the whole day went well. 22 years of marriage - not knowing you, but in a small way knowing you through this media, I can confidently say well done, I'm expecting your character has had alot to do with its success.

Hi Kulasa, thanks for your recent comments. I seem unable to leave comments on your blog as I'm not on FaceBook nor the other options.

Such great photos of Master J and his flight adventure. We have had an airplane for 30 years and i well know all of the fun sights and enjoyment he will get from this. Know he was excited, and what a motivator. Also love the view of the beauty in your wedding dress and the sentiment expressed.

Very special: flight lessons!

How beautiful that you quoted those lines from Keat's poem, Endymion. It is one of my favorite poems. So is it your anniversary?

The hand beaded lace is gorgeous. Maybe you should consider showing the entire dress. I ,for one, would love to see it.

Your husband did a fantastic job capturing your son's excitement!
