It's easier to sleep, thirty-five thousand feet above the sea. Air
miles and turnstiles click, you close your eyes, adjust your seat. No
smoking signs, destination times, "Leave your baggage at the terminal
3". A one way ticket to escape: take flight, leave life behind on the
runway. "Ladies and gentlemen, may I have your attention please, this
is your captain speaking. We are experiencing a total loss of control.
All of our engines have stopped, cabin pressure is falling fast, your
oxygen masks are located above your seats. We've lost radio contact
with air traffic control. It's a long way down and I'm told that the
water in the North Sea is freezing cold. As we plummet towards certain
death, if you look out the windows to your left you'll see your life
flashing before your eyes" (and it's ending one minute at a time).
You'll learn to fly with broken wings, to make perfect emergency
landings. I'll nose dive into uncharted waters, and they'll never
recover the wreck. This is the end.
