Coming back on the flight I'm sitting minding my own business, my ritual
has always been to be completely quiet when I am flying I don't talk to a
soul! I read, sleep, write or think. So many of my ideas come when I am
flying. So I settle into my seat and get ready for my usual. The guy
sitting next to me starts talking. Oh boy, I thought, he is going to have
to shut up soon because my ritual is about to begin! The guy then starts
wincing and writhing around in his seat and was looking like he was about
to scream. I am thinking this is going to be an interesting journey! Then he says I am so terrified of flying, I cannot stand it do you mind if
we talk for the entire flight? Huh? Can we talk until we touch down? Huh? You fly often? Yeah Great, So then I am in the right seat. The man started talking and talking and talking and talking. Okay, let me make friends with reality.Listen to the man be fully present! When we landed, the man got back the colour in his face and told me I was
an angel, and one that can fly and started laughing and got off the plane,
I did not see him again!
