“…a premonition of an incursion into a forbidden world
whence it was going to be infinitely difficult to return…”
– Antoine de Saint Exupéry “ Wind, Sand & Stars” p18 1854S
I have, like most of you, loved Antoine de Saint Exupéry for his famous classic The Little Prince. But when I read his book Wind, Sand & Stars, I loved him even more. He tells there of his days as a mail pilot between world wars out of France and across the Mediterranean. “Wind, Sand and Stars captures the grandeur, danger, and isolation of flight. Its exciting account of air adventure, combined with lyrical prose and the spirit of a philosopher, makes it one of the most popular works ever written about flying. “
The romance of the Antoine de Saint Exupéry biographical stories enchants me to this day. The painting grew out of that.
It helped that I learned to pilot our own Cessna 175 in Canada- got my pilot’s license back in the days of the wild west of Alberta. I cherish that memory always. 🙂

It’s still so incredible to me that you were such a wild, smart and brave woman to become a pilot in the plains of Canada. Mama, you are an inspiration always.
Oh, thank you dear daughter of mine! It was a great place to learn to fly, and I can see in this moment that it was all for a particular destiny I opened to and for good reason!
