    Dear Unsealers,

    I wrote this on the tarmac of my local airport as I witnessed my 16 year old son take his first solo flight. He didn’t even have a drivers license, yet he strapped into the cockpit of a single engine plane and piloting towards the runway. I felt helpless, proud, scared to death, and wanting to run behind his plane all at once. After what felt like a heart stopping forever, he skillfully landed the plane and taxied in. This moment will always be surreal and magical for me.


    You sail across the mid-day sky

    The wind upon my sullen face

    You climb to heights unseen

    I feel weightless

    Like a feather tossed along by the playful wind

    My mind is blank, like sterile moonlight

    Your heart is warm, like the velvety morning sun

    I feel helpless and hopeful

    You are falling, drifting, gliding across the open horizon

    I can move and love, freely

    You can feel all of Earth beneath your unmarred feet

    I hold the Universe across my fragile shoulders

    And the silence roars into my ears

    Along with the bristling of my every hair

    The windy tears dry upon my sunburnt cheeks

    You are weightless, drifting, soaring

    And after seconds that seem like fragments of eternity

    Gently, you land, into my embrace

    Ricardo Albertorio

    • Please for give the grammatical errors in my little prologue…I was so excited to post from my phone, that I didn’t even proofread! Is there a way to edit posts? Oh well…I’ll slow down next time 🙂
