Day #26 #SOL17
Sitting in seat 15C, the aisle. Across the aisle a slack-jawed teen already stretched out with his headphones and eyes closed. A young toddler walks past me in the aisle carrying her small backpack on her back and looking pleased as punch with her independence. As they find their seats behind me. I have a feeling I’ll be hearing more from her later.
In the middle and window seat next to me is a young girl about ten traveling with her grandmother. The girl is telling joke after joke to her grandmother. I love listening to them talk and think about possible trips with my own grandchildren.
The flight attendant goes by asking me to make sure my bag is fully under the seat in front of me. As we take off, I settle in with my book, The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown, and all the other sounds around me seem to disappear.
