Compression socks, hydrate.
Awake to a dim cabin.
Calm bluish light bounces around the white interior. Everything glows.
Smiling, reflecting on our steel drum accompanied boarding, a charming voice, and a promise of a punctual new airline.
Movie screen swings down. Nope, not Cool Runnings.
Baby crying, baby laughing.
Hydrate, bathroom break.
More water, hummingbird on my paper cup.
Scuba diving, white sand, exploration. Maybe next time…maybe.
Engines idle. Soft murmurs are audible again.
