Airlines are well known for providing a vomit bag for every passenger. Trains and buses are not. This is because there are inherent risks in taking flight as opposed to staying on the ground, namely turbulence, but there are inherent benefits as well. Even those petrified of flying somehow manage to board in the name of saving time, hassle, and in rare cases, money. I’ve often found that the amount of risk correlates to the amount of reward.

My latest risk was rather large and I feel that I’m in need of the vomit bag. I’m sure things will begin to settle now that I’ve “landed”, but the experience is no less disorienting. The “turbulence” was far more than I had anticipated and the “benefits” haven’t yet been realized. Nevertheless, I’m determined to “fly” again.
