     I just turned 58 and like the wonderment of a child, I still get excited to get on a plane and fly.  I have to sit by the window always and am still in such awe trying to comprehend how this big heavy plane can be up in the air!  And that there's only a few feet of metal and whatnot between me and the space below.  Sunrises and sunsets still amaze me as do spider webs, birds feeding their young, lightning, and the destruction of wind and rain and other natural occurrences.   I give thanks often from the heart.  Being grateful for just being alive (even during the times it sucks) is something I am daily.
