A little about you.
1. We certainly don’t want to dwell in the past, but sometimes it’s helps the drive forward to look in the rear view mirror. If you could go back and change one thing about the way you were raised, what would it be? If it’s nothing, tell us why?
2. If you could go back and tell your 10 year-old self, or tell an authority figure, one thing, which person would you choose and what would you say?
3. When’s the last time you felt afraid and/or lonely? We’re not trying to be sad here but a little “me too” always feels good.
4. We all know magic is way more than a card trick. So, when was the last time you experienced magic? Or the only way to describe the experience was “magical”?
6. Is there a way that aviation taps into the sacred/holy/spiritual/universe to you? If not - no, wait, there has to be right?
7. If you could guarantee 1 thing for yourself 10 years from now, what would it be? Or maybe it’s nothing because messing with the future is tricky?
Beyond the dispiriting headlines and polarizing rhetoric, there are human moments I get to watch each and every single day, merely by being in an airport. I watch flight attendants offering masked smiles and warm greetings on flights, customers occasionally bringing bags of chocolate or another thoughtful treat to say thank you to airline employees, and co-workers who take care of each other. Little ones getting excited at the prospect of getting on an airplane, their eyes and imaginations lighting up with excitement and possibility when they get to walk into the flight deck, or a flight attendant lets them say "welcome aboard" .These small moments of innocent joy and gratitude keep me going from day to day, and I hope this adds a little joy to yours as well.
