A fabulous gift for an aspie is a biplane flight.
Strapped snugly in the cockpit, with the pilot behind, you see the airstrip beckon.
When the engine fires, you feel every rod and tappet clanking away.
Takeoff is breathtakingly swift.
Once you’re aloft, the strut wires zing as the tiny craft surfs every zephyr.
But you don’t feel afraid.
The plane is over 90 years old. Statistically, if it were going to crash, it would’ve done so already.
Though linked to the pilot by headphones, the wind and noise dissuade chit-chat – freeing you to savour the journey alone.
As you gaze down at your past – mapped out in homes, schools, offices and parks – you may feel brief respite from life’s struggle.
And on your reluctant return to earth, you’ll very likely feel blessed that someone cared enough to grant you such a wonderful adventure.
