I’ve heard it said, ” If you want to find out how spiritually fit you are, go for a trip on the public transit system. ”
For air travel, this is a factor of 10 to the public transit system, due to an inherent sense of entitlement that accompanies jet travel and at least for me I am out of my comfort bubble. ( I extend this discomfort to most.)
The first time I flew was from Sydney to Boston when I was 13. I thought then that planes could fly because God willed it… As I sat on the tarmac in my window seat , I saw the rivets on the wing and realized that planes flew because of the skills of people I assumed had a similar deportment to my drunk uncles.
