Due to their agile, lightweight design, gliders can land in places most planes can’t. For example, having encountered a paucity of lift, it is not uncommon for a pilot to simply cut her losses, pick a good spot, and touch down in a grassy field. We call this “landing out.”
Our lives are the sum of micro movements. Every second of every day, an infinite number of unpredictable factors wholly predict the course we travel—the people we meet, our life experiences and where we find ourselves—right here, right now. Independently, these factors seem trivial. A butterfly in Bali couldn’t possibly cause a hurricane in Bermuda. Or, could it?
