I'll bet most of us have some 14-foot wingspan bird hovering in the back of our consciousness someplace. By this I mean we all have a huge, elusive incredible sighting we'd like to make in our own life. In particular, one's Alaskan bird is something really cool one would like to see, but which is neither a necessity nor a material goal--just a quirky little thing flying on the horizon, illuminated by the sunset. In my life, for instance, writing a book which I self-publish and then get people to buy a hundred or two copies (my chess booklet having peaked out around 70 or so) is a huge, elusive Alaskan bird of my inner psyche. I don't know if I'll ever confirm it happened, but I spot it, floating in mid-air, once in a while, tantalizing me to discover it.
What is your 14-foot elusive bird?
