up on the airplane nearer my god to thee i start making a deal inspired by gravity if i did wrong i won’t do it again i can be sweet and good and nice and if i had enemies they’re friends i hold onto my life with the grip of a vice up on the airplane nearer my god to thee i start making a deal inspired by gravity that little spot on the ground is my hometown i like to call it my home and it’s sweet i’d rather take a seat down there than a throne up here up above 30,000 feet and i’m up on the airplane i never should’ve read my horo- scope or the fortune on the bubble gum strip saying what you think won’t happen will great thing to read before a trip on an airplane pilot says the big blue sky’s like a swimming pool big fluffy clouds like a feather bed i’d rather have a real pillow underneath my head lying in my bed which is in my hometown which is on the ground far from an airplane far from an airplane up on the airplane up on the (i’ll be making a deal) up on the (i’ll be making a deal) up on the (i’ll be making a deal) – Indigo Girls
I have been lacking inspiration as of late and the blog shows it. I’m not ready to give it up yet. I am not entirely sure WHY I am not ready to give it up yet, but I am simply not. And so I am going to take a page from
Anisa and blog my way through the alphabet. We’ll see how far I get!
I started with airplane because I was just on one this week, traveling to and from New Orleans for work. I am a pretty good traveler, once I am on my way (I’m always a mess leading up!) and I did fine on the flight out. Coming back, I was worn out and just feeling kind of out of it. I don’t wear a watch and since I had my cell phone off, I hadn’t a clue how long we were on the plane. I have learned to listen for the plane to make certain sounds and my ears to pop, etc. to see if we are starting to descend. This time, I was alerted by the feeling of shooting down the first big hill of a rollercoaster – you know, the kind where your stomach comes up into your chest? It just went downhill from there. I felt like all the air left the plane and I was dizzy and sick. I am always glad to land but this time I was very glad!
