Facing Forward

On Time

July 8

I know people who refuse to fly.  I try to convert them.  Flying is the fastest way between most points.  And there are many times when speed of travel matters.

But I understand being afraid to fly.  It makes perfect sense to me.  Every time I’m in a plane I feel like it’s an unnatural experience.  I do not think human beings were built to fly.  When I fly I feel a bit like I’m cheating the order of things.  But then I get over it and I’m relieved to get where I’m going.

I’ve flown because I want to and I’ve flown because I have to.  Either way I say a prayer asking for safety on the way up and I say Thank God when I land.  I have respect for the achievement but it still makes me nervous.
