Dreaming about Flying

Dreaming About Flying

I grew up playing on swing sets and jumping off as far as I could at the playground.  Growing up as long as I remember I had a dreams of swinging on a swing set and jumping off a cliff hundreds of feet high.  I would jump off the swing and fly through the air and I always woke up before I hit the ground.  In 1972 I purchased a Standard Wing Jobe Hanglider and jumped off a Mississippi River Bluff across from the Schmidt Brewery in St. Paul, MN.   That ended my childhood flying dreams.  Here is a link to some of my flying interests.
