The Payoff for Conquering Fears

Last week, after 10 years of being completely terrified of the idea, I got back on an airplane.  Woo hoo!!!  Although there were about 3 moments in the airport where there was a real chance I'd turn tail and run, it shocked me how calm I was once I got into my seat. 

What people say is true; you've got to face your fears to conquer them, and  I'm so glad I did.  Some of the most beautiful things I've ever seen have been from the air.  How can anyone help but be awestruck and inspired by sights like this.

The plane took me to Ft. Lauderdale where I got on a ship.  It was a great cruise, even though the music playing as we left port was the theme from Gilligan's Island.  Every holiday should start with a laugh.  A big ahoy to all the peeps I met on the Constellation last week.
