To Launch! @FlightWaveAero

I wrote this post a few weeks ago but had to wait until this week. I’m thrilled to be a part of the FlightWave Aerospace team launching the company’s new “Edge” Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) into the world.

To Launch.

Oh, how I love thee. I admit I love an opening.

An opening night, a business launch, a publishing, a website go-live, the cracking of champagne to a glass or over a hull. The moment before the doors open to an event, party, meeting, extravaganza.

The lights go down, the curtain goes up. In the theatre, we call this Magic Time. I love the beginnings of things. The first times. Who doesn’t right?

My producer nature, my inner and outer artist loves the grand push of that week and a few days before. And so we are clear a bad dress rehearsal usually, makes for a beautiful opening. We say break a leg to ward off the evil spirits.

As I get older and wiser (hopefully) I’ve learned over the years that not everything will go as planned. That grace under pressure is best for everyone. If I am calm, they are calm. If there are tears, they need to be of joy and the others need to be hidden away in the other room. No need to freak everyone out.

Breathe. And keep it moving forward.

Here’s to the producers, though I find most of us are. You have the chutzpah and bravery to have an idea and push it out into this grand world of ours, and that takes guts.

I love celebrating a dreamer’s hard work. Their bravery, their vulnerability. And if it happens, telling them quietly there is a typo. With a smile and a quick fix.

So here I am again on the brink of a launch, an opening. Heartbeat with a quickness, a spring in my step and the hope of grand goodness.

Let’s do it. Push the button. Open. Wide. With vim and vigor.

Thank you for giving some claps if you liked this. :)
