Travel in 2020 is at best weird and at worst, nonexistent. In a simple moment this morning as I was looking at something I realized how much my perspective is opened by travel; by seeing how other people live - and seeing what makes sense to them - my soul is enriched. It quite truly does what I love most - it shakes *you* out of yourself for a bit.
I recently helped my dear friend @melaniemann1516 move across the South West of our (currently rather messed up) country.
Precautions, sanitation’s, 😷, hand washing, closed businesses, distancing, etc etc really can zap some of the carefree joy that innately comes with exploring. It also made me realize that a lot of us are all going through similar stuff. We’re not quite as divided as it seems on TV.
Along my route, through 4 plane transfers (no direct flights available as planes are running at only 15% capacity on @southwestair -for which I am very grateful btw, they did a PHENOMENAL job) these enormous friendly cloud puffs appeared all around the aircraft ✈️ We were over Nashville, TN and it seemed as though the pilot was slowly weaving around them, almost in playful observation.
✨They were breathtaking✨
It was such a nice reminder of the joy, the wonder, of seeing the world. Captured on my soon to be retired iPhone 8, so yes the resolution could be better, but I think you get the jest of it.
For anyone else that misses travel as much as I do, this view is for you too. #jamesandthegiantpeach #cloudpeople #airtravels
