The clearest description I have managed so far about my blog is that it is not about cats. In general, I find predators pretty predictable while prey on the other-hand, because they live in universes of anxiety, develop more textured personalities. I also have as a writer a deft hand when it comes to making matters worse, so of course , the already panicky are ready made for me. I will try to grow this blog into an assortment of laughs, because that is what my life has mostly taught me to do. I will use the famous people I have known to get your attention and then tell you small but many times wonderful things about them. I will never name the ones I say ugly things about but I hope you will guess who they are.
The Wright Brothers
by Regis Boff
Every country throws off both good and bad while history allows it to last, but few glow with singular splendor.
I just finished reading, ‘The Wright Brothers’ by David McCullough. It is a way to rekindle the awe that should come naturally in being American.
It is my deduction that no woman or man in all of history has not wished to fly.
Neil Armstrong landed on the moon carrying a tiny swatch from the wing of the Wright’s first plane.
Below is a real photo of Wilber Wright curving around the Statue of Liberty while thousands standing on Manhatten saw their dreams in the air for the very first time.
