A few weeks ago, I was jogging up in the foothills south of my home. It was a typically beautiful Wyoming summer morning after a rainy night — clear blue sky, a few puffy white clouds, and a cool breeze bearing the intoxicating scent of sagebrush still wet with raindrops. But my mind was elsewhere, on the newsletter I had to publish later that morning.

As I was working on the newsletter after jogging, my mind began wandering back to the foothills where I had been earlier that morning.… Read more

John Cali

Since we’ve been talking about death in several recent newsletters, I thought we’d take a parting shot at this thing so many dread more than any other human experience. Next week, we’ll move on to “lighter” subjects.

Way back when I was a young pilot, I had a close encounter with death I’ll never forget.

I was ferrying a small plane from Pennsylvania to Virginia one hot summer afternoon. There were thunderstorms in the area, but I couldn’t see them.… Read more
