I for Icarus (A to Z Challenge)

There is something we have in common, we both love flying! When I was a little girl I didn't play with dolls, I was making plain models. When I was 15 I joined gliding club and by the age of 16 I was a gliding pilot.
Even though his efforts ended tragically Icarus is my hero.

So long my friends,


  1. Icarus was always one of my favorite myths, but come to think of it, I'm not much of a fan of its lesson...

  2. Wow! Flying at 16. Amazing.


  3. My ex-father in law was a glider pilot too, he really enjoyed it. Unfortunately I never got a chance to join him in a flight. It must be like being a bird!

  4. I got to do one glider flight - fabulous experience. I can see why Icarus would appeal to you.

  5. Flying in a glider most be the most peaceful way to fly! I would love to try someday.

  6. Hi Evalina ... surprisingly I also used to glide at 16 ... I did it in Cornwall .. but haven't done it in decades. Do you still glide? It's an amazing sport isn't it ... what fun to find a fellow glideress!! Cheers Hilary
