In the air - and on the ground: read Richard Bach

One of my favourite authors. He was on my mind being a passenger in a microplane from Norway, along the western coast of Sweden, crossing Denmark and, after landing on several grassfields for fueling, reaching Norden in northern Germany. And home. We flew wearing swimvests - constantly looking for places to land - just in case. A truly thrilling and magic journey. I will never stop reading Jonathan Livingston Seagull or Illusions. This flight was a timely reminder to never give up and to believe. Read. Please.

Richard David Bach (born June 23, 1936) is an American writer. He is widely known as the author of the hugely popular 1970s best-sellers Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah, among others. Bach's books espouse his philosophy that our apparent physical limits and mortality are merely appearance. He claims to be a direct descendant of Johann Sebastian Bach. Bach is noted for his love of flying and for his books related to air flight and flying in a metaphorical context. He has pursued flying as a hobby since the age of 17. In late August 2012 Bach was badly injured when on approach to landing at Friday Harbor his aircraft clipped some power lines and crashed upside down in a field.
