“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Pilot or Poet?
Sunday, March 1, 2009

Now and then someone will utter a spontaneous sentence that is beautiful, succinct, yet soaked with meaning. In case you missed it, this is what the pilot of the USAir flight that landed on the Hudson River said when he finally learned, after the chaos had settled, that all 155 of his passengers had survived:

"I felt like the weight of the universe had been lifted off my heart."

I have one for you, from yours truly. When I found out my 2-1/2 year old son was autistic, a friend asked how I was doing. I replied, "I feel like a woman moving forward, chest-deep in water."

The most dire situations bring out the poet in all of us.
