Tomorrow night’s (March 6) programme at the monthly Mondays at Six at St Clements in Musgrave will feature readings by Pieter Scholtz from his new book, Learning to Fly.

‘The air up there in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious. And why shouldn’t it be? It is the same the angels breathe.’ - Mark Twain

Limited in his nature, infinite in his desires, Man is a fallen God who remembers heaven. - Alphonse de Lamertine

Man must rise above the Earth – to the top of the atmosphere and beyond, for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives. - Socrates

Most gulls don’t bother to learn more than the simplest facts of flight – how to get from shore to food and back again. For most gulls it is not flying that matters, but eating.
For this gull, though, it was not eating that mattered, but flight. More than anything else, Jonathan Livingston Seagull loved to fly. -Richard Bach

“The readings are illustrated with striking images that appear in the book. People have asked: ‘Learning to fly what? Is it an instruction manual?’, explains Scholtz. “My response is Yes, I hope it will guide people to soar like I have. I hope flyers will go beyond known boundaries and soar into unknown territory. I hope they will share the exhilaration of flying!’”
