One step from oblivion
Things are entirely what they appear to be and
behind them...there is nothing.
Commercial air travel is a regular part of our
lives, yet many of us still feel an eerie disquiet when we fly. You browse
the in-flight magazines while a 37,000 foot chasm of emptiness lurks just
beneath your shoes. You snack on little pretzels while a few inches away
life-sucking minus 60 degree airstreams whip by. The flight attendants
point out exits that go nowhere.
The airline that doesn't kill me makes me stronger.
