What a treat it was to fly right over Antibes on the way to Nice. I looked out the window and was thrilled to see the port, the Old Town, the Place de Gaulle and my old ‘hood. And seeing it from this bird’s eye view gave me new perspective. Of course, I had seen the city like this many times when I gazed upon a map trying to find my way, but no representation could capture the vitality and the richness that I saw perched in my plane. Oh, the wonder of it all!
