Film work, Flying, Fine food, and other F’s

Been a while…
Been working in Louisiana (Donaldsonville) shooting a film and I found remarkable things in the middle of what is still by and large an area that looks war ravaged. The people are overwhelmingly kind and upbeat, and the food remarkable. Tuna steak and shrimp etoufee? I would never have thought of the two. And though not a big fan of fried food, I would love for someone to explain how chicken can be fried so lightly it not only doesn’t taste fried but doesn’t leave grease on one’s fingertips.
On the flying part, we had to drive up to bring equipment to the set, but it is yet another reason I am motivated to finish my private and get my ticket punched so I can continue to expand my aviator’s knowledge base and ability. Plus, there is a great deal to be said for flying somewhere in a couple to few hours versus twelve hours on the road.
I love flying. I admit it. I am one of those people who loves the smell of av gas and jet fuel. I am one of those people who likes to go to the airport even if I am not traveling somewhere, simply because it feels adventurous. There is something amazing about the orchestrated hustle, the unchoreographed dance of travellers as they move through the terminals and tarmacs.
And flying? Amazing. The sensation of the roll out and bank, and watching as the patchwork below becomes more geometric, that is a sort of magic that is best left to experience, as the description does more to tease.
I have to get my written exam out of the way and I can get back to the task of flying -which isn’t really a task.
