Security is the prompt for this week’s photo challenge and I’ve chosen to share a photo from the security of inside a plane.
As I boarded the plane the other day, I was reminded that when flying we put our lives in the pilot’s hands.
I really don’t know how planes stay up in the air but I somehow feel secure being above the clouds. I don’t like heights, being out of control or being on edges, but somehow I like flying.
I love looking down at the world below and feel secure in the knowledge that I am safe.
Despite all the plane accidents around the world, I don’t get into a plane and feel rising panic. There is a feeling of security, maybe misguided, but thankfully it’s there, as I have a lot of travelling still to do. And Australia is a long way from anywhere!
Do you feel secure in a plane? Or a you a nervous flyer?
In case you’re wondering, I flew from Wagga Wagga to Brisbane, to visit my daughter before spending time with my parents in a week’s time. Family evokes a feeling of security too, especially now.
Enjoy your weekend!
