GORILLA WRITERS... SOUND OFF!
Of course, the thrill of flying on a wing and a prayer is made all the
more enjoyable when you have someone to share it with. When you have
respect and admiration for those who share the win. Creative artists
with whom I would have worked any time, any place, given the
opportunity. And now that opportunity had parked itself on the runway
in front of my house. One plane among a squadron of nine. Each plane's
nose emblazoned with the determined visage of a powerful simian looking
over us like a trusted guardian. And perched upon the wings of the
other planes were my fellow thrill seekers, beckoning me to join them.
It was an invitation impossible to resist. I would get all the thrill
of flying solo, with all the benefits of knowing that there'd be others
to spur me on and watch my back. The joy of being part of something
bigger, yet still being my own flight commander. And as we all stared
out to the promised land, we knew that we trusted one another, and that
we were united in a common goal. Turn left, turn right, climb up above
The possibilities were endless. And with each new endeavor, we would
applaud each other's success and share in the glory. And who doesn't
like the sound of applause - especially from those whom you respect?
I feel so privileged to be one of the few, the proud… the Gorillas!
