Saturday Musings – My Secret Passion…

20200418_gaming What are you passionate about?

I always love hearing someone share about their passion. They come more alive than ever as they get engrossed in trying to convey the emotions they experience as they go sailing, build something out of wood or hike through the mountains. For me, it’s playing games.

For almost the entirety of my life I’ve enjoyed board games, card games and of course, computer games. Now that I’m in my fifties, my father was surprised that I still played computer games until he saw what they’re now like. He said to me, “I didn’t realise that games have grown as you’ve become older.”

In this video I share about my secret passion for computer games. How I was part of the team that worked on the very first Lord of the Rings game for a Z80 processor until now, I’m having fun in virtual reality. Games are my secret passion….what’s yours?

If you’re a gamer experiencing the “joys” of the COVID lock-down then don’t hesitate to reach out to me on Steam or my blog here. It would be great to connect on a planet far, far away….in the meantime, enjoy this glimpse into another aspect of my life.

Have a great weekend!
Michael

Michael : My passion as you probably know is flying.Although I now am a bit too old now to be flying professionally,I still get to keep my hand in by being asked to use my talents and experience to fly some really nice equipment in the corporate area of the industry.I still get a real "buzz" when I get to walk down the stairs of a Global Challenger {aka: Grumman Gulfstream G7 } after a 16 hour flight to Dubai.At the moment as you have probably noticed aviation at the moment is almost totally grounded,as are the borders here and around the world slammed shut. I heard recently that one of my compatriots was trying to fly to the Arab Emirates for a client,They had already received clearance to go there,and had all the approvals etc...,but as they were preparing to make the approach decent ,they were joined by two FA18 fighters who asked them to folllow then to an airforce base, They were allowed to continue their trip abeit by land transport to their destination after a bit of to and fro traffic with the authorities, By the way you will probably have a smile about this,I still have and often still wear my "Doenwind" polo shirt.Anyway enough from me.stay healthy,stay safe out there.My very best wishes to yourself,Roselyn and your amazing kids as always.

It's always great to hear from you! Yes, the aviation industry has been completely smashed....and I'm not surprised by your story about the two F18s. The world is in lockdown while at the same time being driven by a high level of fear.... You keep safe, keep flying and enjoy life.
