---What if she sailed down the frozen Connecticut River holding a sheet?

---What if she designed and made elaborate costumes?

---What if she rode in the basket of a hot air balloon at the ages of 90, 95, and 98?

---What if as a teenager she loved to ride on a motorcycle and in her 60s decided to get her license to drive one?

Read the answers and much more about this amazing woman's life in The Wing Walker.

About the Author

Bernard J. Fleury Ed.D.
Author of Light Book series that will enlighten you.

Here's the meet Bernard video:

I am Professor Emeritus at Westfield State University and a Roman Catholic Permanent Deacon. I have an A.A. degree in Classical Languages, a B.A. in History, a M.S. in Elementary Education with a minor in Philosophy, and an Ed.D. in Administration with a minor in Government. I taught in both the undergraduate and graduate divisions at Westfield State University for thirty years and was a Public School teacher and principal for thirteen years. I also served as Director of School Administration at Westfield State University, and as Director of Teacher Education, Academic Vice President, and President protem at International College of the Cayman Islands over a sixteen-year period. At present I am a corporator in the Westfield State University Foundation.

I have worn a third hat as an ordained Catholic Permanent Deacon for the past thirty three years.

For the past several years I have been devoting my retirement to nonfiction writing, nearly all of which is on the theme of Light as a Someone and a Something. We are all Called Into Life By The Light. Life and Light are tied together. Lifelight describes their relationship best because both our "without" (our physical being) and our "within" (our spirit) are basically light in two different forms:

1. Physical energy that occupies space, has weight, can be measured, and...
2. Psychic or spiritual energy which is a force that causes things to happen and, thus, real energy, but it does not occupy space, have weight, or be empirically measured.

That is what we humans are: complex, amazing, wonderful creatures, made in the image and likeness of God for our own sakes, to know, love, and serve him in this life, and be with him forever in heaven.

As the titles of my books in the Light series indicate, I explore what light is as a Someone and Something in a number of areas of human experience.

My wife Ludmila and I live on a small farm in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains in Western Massachusetts. We have two adult children and one grandson.
