Showcasing the beauty of the human spirit - in mid air - around the world

"Although your goal may be distant, the pathway to it is not. The path is right here, right now. Even the most ambitious achievements are built one step at a time. The next step is always ready for you to take. Don’t be frustrated about how long it will take. Get excited and enthusiastic about how much you can do right now. Living your dream begins long before the dream is fully achieved. Living your dream begins the moment you take the very first step toward it. The satisfaction of reaching the goal is built in the efforts you make to reach it. From the moment you begin, you can start to feel that satisfaction. There’s a whole lot of joy to be created in the journey. Begin the journey, and begin the joy." — Ralph Marston
