Yesterday I went flying. Normally that wouldn't be anything unusual, but yesterday was not a normal day. It was Wednesday, September 12, the day after the attack on the World Trade Center. Flying yesterday was a bizarre and emotional experience. I'm writing this account both to share the experience with others and as a record for myself of that peculiar and difficult day.
