Flying in a six seat Cessna at 5,000ft.on a clear night can be an exhilarating experience. What a sense
of freedom and escape. Looking at all the lit-up towns is truly fascinating. Small patches of 50 and 100 lights. Larger towns with 1,000, 5,000, 10,000 lights. Single lights off in an isolated nowhere. Imagine under all those lights, the stories. People trying to make a living. Struggling to get along with one another. Marriages, births, deaths, divorces, pain, excitement, joy, sorrow, kids, keeping up with the neighbors, new cars, taxes, Democrats, Republicans, homecoming queens, town heroes, town whores, lovers of life, killers of hope. Couples dealing with marital affairs, child molesters, the molested, winners of science fairs, football players, cheerleaders, the homeless living under the local overpass, failed business owners, people trying to find God in all the wrong places. Everybody’s looking for something.
