  • Its always a little surreal to fly on an airplane.

    Reason #1 - I always imagine what the differences would be if it was a space ship. Id just be traveling to another planet, but the aircraft would probably be the same. A bumpy take off with G forces pushing me back into my seat. A relatively boring flight where my ass numbs from sitting for hours. A landing, bumpy and fun. When I step of the plane.. or spaceship, I am in a new place, a new planet, a new city, a new climate. Whats the difference?

    Reason #2 - It is a whole new perspective on life. Instead of being on the ground, we are up in the air. I look at the clouds, and they look like a bubbling pot of water. It is water after all.. just in a different form. Looking down instead of up, helps me create new stories of how and why things work. Imagine living in the clouds, on a plane that never landed? What kind of society would that be?

    Flying is too much fun. The sunsets are just too cool.

    This was my last thought before passing out and waking up as we landed in LAX.
    Back on the ground looking up.
