a giant shadow cast as we fly by.
Wind upon my face
powerful yet as gentle as God's grace.
I'm a bird on wheels
I've known no greater thrills.
Fly by, fly high
smiling wide in the sky.

I went hang gliding for the first time on Sunday, November 25, 2012 after hearing how spectacular the experience is from my dearest Scott. Scott has his Hang 4, has flown thermals in Owens Valley, competed in Cross Country Classic and the Nationals, and he has never said a bad thing about his journey as a bird. So I had to do it!
I recently started my private pilot's training for small aircraft but I had a stronger desire to fly a glider. Thanks to Scott's connections, within a week of expressing a desire to fly, we had an appointment with the 3-time World Champion, Zac Majors of Hang Gliding Academy to fly near Brentwood in view of Mount Diablo.
