Flight Deck

For me, the airline flights are the worst. Not because of a fear of flying or anything like that, but because the ideal of flight seems so full of promise and the actuality so awful.

We as a species and culture advanced to conquer flight not through biology but technology! Flight seems romantic and beautiful and amazing and exciting.

And then in reality it’s hours locked away in a metal tube with strangers sitting uncomfortably.

They’re always the loneliest places for me.
