The Cockpit

The Cockpit

The cockpit was my office.  It was a place where I experienced many emotions and learned many lessons.  It was a place of work and also a keeper of dreams.  It was a place of deadly serious encounters, yet there I discovered much about life.  I learned about joy and sorrow, pride and humility, fear and overcoming fear.  I saw much from that office that most people will never see.  At times it terrified me, yet I could always feel at home there.  It was my place, at that time in space, and the jet was mine for those moments.  Though it was a place where I could quickly die, the cockpit was a place where I truly lived.

(With apologies to Brian; for taking “liberties” with his piece here, to “wicker it” a bit to fit my personal thoughts on the cockpit…)
