As one would assume, flying is not a topic that comes up often during a session. However, when a groom mentions that he is or was a pilot, I’m all ears. I completed my private pilot certificate training last year (and have my license!). Though I don’t fly nearly as much as I would like, I love to learn from other pilots.
Edward was a military pilot until a back injury made it impossible for him to fly professionally. So, rather than giving up his career, he became a drone pilot. Of course, I literally had a million questions I wanted to ask him. Unfortunately, he can’t really share any of that with anyone – it’s all classified. Bummer.
The individual stories of each of our clients (and some of their piloting experiences) are fascinating. Daffodil and Edward are getting married in Taiwan next year, and the stories about their lives and travels are incredible. I only got to spend two hours with them, and that little intersection of our lives will remain with me forever.
