A lesson and little joke from 1500′ UP: “What did you do today, honey?” “Oh just changed a lightbulb.” (a 420 character, 9-liner)

A beacon. I am awed by this

gone-viral-NYC-drone- film-festival-2016-official-selection-youTube;

but after the WOW! something still tugs my mind & heart

like a flashlight scan of a dark woods shadow.

The new WOW:

Spent bulbs need replacing to better navigate tricky waters & airways;

to see a task at hand; to do what needs doing w/ wisdom & skill.

That’s what our country needs for our next leader:

to be like a beacon.



Tower Climber, Kevin Schmidt climbs a 1500 foot high antenna in Salem, South Dakota to change the light bulb. This massive climb was filmed by YouTube user and film-maker Prairie Aerial.
