Famous Aviators

Friday's Fabulous Flyer and time for some fun.


Who is this Woman and what did she do in Aviation?

Amazing the number of women aviators that we never heard about in school. This beautiful young lady was told that she "would never make a flier."And yet, she achieved greatness. What did she do?

Never believe someone who tells you that you can't.

Speaking of fun... today is my last day of reserve for a week, and I'm heading to Hawaii tomorrow for a Yoga retreat. 

Mental and physical health go hand in hand. Sometimes we get so busy we become swept up in the waves of our lives. The only way to survive is to step out of the ocean and take a sabbatical. 

For me, I've chosen Yoga: Mind. Body. Soul. Hawaii is the added benefit. Photos to come next week, and perhaps a dip into that ocean. I am taking the sequel, Flight For Safety to continue with the editing process in the evenings.

Enjoy the Journey!

  2. Is it Amy Johnson? I think it is :-) British aviatrix in the earli 1900s.

    Wonderful post, Karlene. If I were to follow what people told me I couldn't do, I would sure as heck not be sitting here today with a pilot license in my wallet.

    October 5 marks the 2 year anniversary for me moving to Florida and pursuing my life long dream. I love every second of this realistic dream. I'm glad I never listened to those who said I wouldn't make it, 'cause guess what? I made it :-)

    Enjoy Hawai'i, I love those island.. Hula hula :-)

    1. Yes.. you got it!

      And I agree. I would not be where I am today, either. There are those who listen and those who question. And those who defy and believe.

      Don't ever let anyone tell you, you can't. You've got a lot of work to do in the world!

      I will enjoy Hawaii. Thank you!
