Our identity loops - the process in which we are guided, affirmed and given feedback - are broken. They used to be closed by our parents, our families, our communities.

I am convinced that with a good winch and good tow-technician, launching via tow is much safer than foot launching and gives the free flight world access to incredible flying in conditions when terrain flying would be too risky. If you are currently doing any tow launching, or plan to in the future, give this podcast a listen. Towing has risks, but…

I, like most of you, have had so many thoughts and feelings surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement, yet none of them are regarding the validity of those words.

We need a collective action on Covid, but we're also afraid that what happened in Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia could happen here in America.
