Air travel still amazes me

It happens every day to thousands of people. I do it on a regular basis. We’ve been doing it for 50 plus years. Yet it still amazes me.

This morning we drove out to the airport and got on a plane. This was an A320…and we flew to Toronto. That would take 4 days to drive and we are here for supper!

It amazes me…still.

Our world has never been smaller. It has never been more culturally mixed. It has never been so saturated with technology and information.

So are we happier? Are we more satisfied? Are our families more secure or cohesive?

As I age the more I come to realize that the things that are important are not things. I am grateful for travel. I am grateful for technology. But I am most grateful for the people I love and those who love me.
