"Spin" in aviation training: a "stall" or loss of lift, a subsequent nose-down spin, the specific actions required for recovery, and the feeling, after recovery, that you could tackle absolutely anything!

Poetry Corner.

'Just a little something I wrote:

"Peel back the layers of fill and diligence;
The strict adherence to the "must" and "the way it's done,"
And uncover the green freshness of a new thought.

Pull the curtain that blends into above and below,
And reveal the edges and contrast
Of a possibility, fashioned from a pile of previously discounted ideas.

Undo the stitches that fixed the two sides,
And let the vision rise up and out,
To refresh, rekindle, and inspire.

And when you arrive, after all the undoing, at your
Pay homage to the roots that kept it there;
That held it fast.
They knew of your integrity and that you would return."
