To everyone that has told me how much they hate flying, here's one of the many reasons you might want to reconsider your stance. Experiencing a sunrise from above the clouds is one of the few magical experiences you have. Travel east at 5AM, choosing to chase the rising sun or to go west and linger under the blanket of stars just a little longer. It gives a sense of pause, a time to pause and collect oneself. Maybe take a nap. Or read that book you've been meaning to read since February. Maybe finally make that drawing of the succulent you've been eyeing on a blog. Take a picture and share a sliver of sunrise to Instagram. A sense of cruising that is impossible in the hurried flow of our everyday lives.
