Barbara wanted something more — something that was new and fun and freeing. She fell in love the moment she flew. When her feet left the ground, she was changed. Living grounded never seemed an appealing way to live any longer. Flying became just part of who she is. Barbara never thought of leaving because eventually she would dream of coming back. She needed to be in the sky like we need air to breathe. It became a must. It was simply in her soul.
