Clouds Suck

Everything white. My nose and throat full of mist, my feet disappeared, I can see no further than the variometer in my lap, which reads 832 meters- surely that can’t be right?

How To Be Happy

Happiness is a choice. More than that, it’s a choice we must make for ourselves every day. It’s that simple and that hard.
