"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!

"It was there, in the seed of a conversation that it started.
We cleared away the chaff, and the old stalks and leaves,
And we nurtured it over the winter;
Something intangible.
A root so deep,
Something so beautiful.
That when it took off toward the sky,
The new stalks and leaves could not contain themselves,
And now, here we are with blossoms, overwhelming and vibrant,

From just that moment; that seed.
