This post is part of an ongoing challenge to share a little joy I have found each day of this year, and perhaps for the rest of my life. I hope you enjoy it!

Sometimes we forget how incredible our technology is. Much of it is a mindless waste of time, but there is so much that is truly wondrous. As I was flying from Vietnam over to Bali, I realized how unappreciative I was of the fact that I was flying through the sky in a giant machine. It really is amazing when you think of it.
We all need to work on our mindfulness and appreciation of all the amazing things we get to partake of in our modern society, flight being one of them. What used to be impossible or take months or years now takes only hours, with a tiny percentage of the risk those travels used to take when we went by foot or boat.
It is a joy to fly.
And a joy to land safely, because I am terrified of heights.
Double win folks. Remember, stay healthy and let your geek freak fly.
