The Little Prince

Antoine-de-Saint-Exupery

The Little Prince is a novel by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry which was published in 1943. Every decade or so, for one reason or another, I seem to stumble upon this fascinating children’s book. And it always feels like a breath of fresh desert air. Perhaps, it is a way in which I can gauge if I am irrevocably turning old. But alas, while reading this joyful little book, I am always happy to discover that although my body is growing old, I continue to be an incorrigible child!

For those of you that have not had the pleasure I encourage you to pick up this book and read it. There are several characters that I am sure will give some cause for introspection. And being that I am a pilot, I can relate with one of the main characters which is a pilot stranded on the desert.

Btw, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was also a decorated pilot, who unfortunately was lost at sea during a reconnaissance mission during WWII.
