Not many people author their first book at 103 years of age, but after his wife died almost nine years ago, Richard Blomquist was determined to finish what his flight crew of the B-17 he piloted in WWII encouraged him to do 40 years earlier. What he discovered as he searched his soul was that the story his crew and he thought he would write was not at all the story he had to tell. Many years, many experiences, many conversations, and moments of meditation and prayer moved this author to not only tell his life story and what it was like to grow up as a farm boy in Iowa, but how the experience of being a bomber pilot in WWII ignited the flame within him to become a peace activist. Growing into the mystery of life is his mantra, and so he sees the writing of this book as discovery-for himself and, he hopes, for others as well.
