The way to love someone
is to lightly run your finger over that person's soul
until you find a crack,
and then gently pour your love into that crack.

With courage
you will dare
to take risks,

have the strength 
to be compassionate,

and the wisdom 
to be humble.

is the foundation
of integrity.

~Mark Twain

(that's not a picture of a 737 wing, it's a picture of an airplane on approach to a major hub … there was an apparent continuous flow on that radial and it made me think of all of us moving around, sitting beside, passing over … 
all of those ing words…

I was enjoying watching them and musing
the guy behind me leaned forward and asked me if they (the big guys on our 45) were going to hit us. 
He was serious.
It seems so strange how we go looking for troubling thoughts.
I mean … their progress was so orderly … so obviously choreographed …
we'd had a couple of pre-announced (seatbelts pls) altitude adjustments for comfort's sake, but the heading hadn't varied since DFW … he had slowed down but not so that one not particularly listening would notice … our guys up front were pros.
I passed my iPad back over the seat and answered  … those guys aren't aiming for us, they are all just trying to get to there.  See how they are spaced so nice and even?  Those guys, just like our guys, know exactly what they are doing. Nobody wants to ruin a perfectly lovely day.

Just trying to get home.)
