I have lost my desire to become a pilot.

I know that age is a big part of that, but itís something else. Iím thinking Google Earth did it.

When I was a kid, I had this tremendous desire to attach a camera to a kite or a remote controlled airplane so that I could get aerial shots.

I wanted to see what my world looked like from above. I knew just enough from the few times that I flew to appreciate the way that being a few thousand feet in the air radically alters your view of your surroundings.
