BUY THEM A BOOK THEY REALLY WANT
Since the start of this year, I have lost the ability to read and understand concepts.
In my paragliding course, I have focused on the practical side of flying because no matter how much I tried to read on my lessons, I end up staring into space and wondering what to eat.
I feel so frustrated having very low theoretical knowledge of the sport. It didn’t help that the reading materials were all online. Yes, I am a bookworm who still loves smelling and turning pages.
For months, I tried searching for this one recommended book but couldn’t find it in any of the Philippines’ bookstores. So I asked a friend who works in aviation if he knows anyone who could have this book.
He said no he didn’t and then added,
“I will buy the book for you.”
A few weeks later, I received this postal notice…
I have heard horror stories of claiming packages from the Philippine Postal Office, but I was ready to fight for my book.
Thankfully, all I did was pay a handling fee and Dennis Pagen’s “The Art of Paragliding” was in my hands!
Team Dyer, you guys made me cry. Thank you for your generosity!
I haven’t advanced from page 3 yet, but I am looking forward to the day my brain cells wake up then I will devour this manual like crazy!
For now, let me see what’s inside the fridge.
