In this blog I will be trying to get to the truth about what is really important in life, and to write satirically about what is not - all in my quest for The Stuff Reality is Made of.
I also write articles on Religion, History, Travel, Flying, Philosophy, Physics, Meta Physics, Natural History. Mathematics and Psychology.
You can also read my religious articles on our Christian website at www.whatafriend.co.za
Life in the Afternoon - much more than a story of
soaring - and reflections of that on my life by P.K.Odendaal. 23 October 2011.
Part 4 - Masking.
"The time has
come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes - and ships - and sealing-wax ...
Of cabbages - and kings ...
And why the sea is boiling hot ...
And whether pigs have wings."
From the 'Walrus and the Carpenter' By Lewis Carroll
Today I have had a flying start. It is a new day and a new
flight and who knows what the flight of my mind might bring. My hangar
neighbour, Willie, has offered to hold my wing up, while I start the take off
roll, which enables me to have this flying start without the concomitant yaw
and balancing act I normally have to do, starting with a wing on the ground,
similar to the yaws and unbalance I had, when I started off my life without
someone to hold my wing up.

Part 3 - I get a
flying start ....
The previous part ended with my prayer being answered ...
and myself reaching home.
My words flew up, my thoughts remain below
Words without thoughts never to heaven go. (from Hamlet,
My story began with the glider reaching two thousand feet,
and I, cutting myself loose from the surly bonds of earth, by shutting down the
engine, but to have come to that stage, I had to have had a flying start.
