To be honest, I had to look this up. I thought it was just the name of a Bond movie. Actually, a skycatcher is a two-seater Cessna propeller airplane. Most of the Google search results, sadly, are about crashes with these apparently not so reliable little planes. I’m afraid of heights myself. Just the thought of getting into a cubicle with wings (it’s really not much more than that) and flying thousands of feet above the ground is enough to make me feel uncomfortable.
But then I look at this picture and something in me shifts, there is a cogwheel that moves slowly from fear to longing. I won’t lie to you and think up some story about being free as a bird, but it strikes me as immensely rewarding to be able to see so far and see so much. Just like the photographer who made this picture, I’d want to take the image with me. The only difference would be that I’d store it in my memory. And back at home I’d make sixty-foot drawings in gruelling detail that I’d work on for years. After I’d finish I’d behold my own creations and simply enjoy being able to hold entire worlds inside of me. I’d get on a skycatcher for that.
