Update in June 2019: an eye problem might mean the end of flying. I’ve certainly flown my last solo flight – in February 2019. I’ll concentrate instead on improving those activities that I’m still able to perform.
Update in October 2019: the eye problem (a CSR) is slowly getting better, but I will probably give up flying anyway. It has taken a toll on my body, in various ways, and I might as well enjoy more years of decent body movement which the flying (the G and the posture) jeopardises.
Update in July 2020; I think I'll enjoy retirement and family and friends and photography (in flexible order). There are talented people on Blip, although I have work at ignoring the divisive politics of the age, damned as many countries are with their leaders and political (and financial) elites.
