"Ruins are the visible symbols and landmarks of our societies and their changes ... the volatile result of the change of eras and the fall of empires. This fragility leads us to watch them one very last time: to be dismayed, or to admire, it makes us wonder about the permanence of things."

"A skydiver has pulled off an astonishing stunt by climbing out of a glider's cockpit, crawling along the wing and then somersaulting underneath and stepping onto the wing of a second glider flying below.
Paul Steiner then moves back onto the main fuselage of the second glider while the first glider turns upside down and flies overhead so that he can reach up and hold the tail fin at 100mph, forming a human link between the two aircraft. He then leaps off and parachutes back to the ground."

I need the smell of summer, I need it's noises in my ear

It's been a long winter; a lot of storms, a lot of big swells, a lot yucky weather, and a lot of classes. I cannot explain how much I need summer right now. We are t-minus four weeks from finishing, and it seems like each day goes by slower and slower. I need the hot summer nights, I need the warm South swells, I need the hours upon hours at the beach. So, until then, it's studying every night, pretending that there are no waves, and focusing on finishing up the school year right. 25 days and counting...
