"The takeoff on a jet plane. I never get sick of the exhiliration I feel as the jet engines surge and you get pushed back into your seat."
Surreal, I second that. I love the whole "suspended" time (in akll its meanings) during flight. I dread the day they allow cell phone use during flight. It's one of the beautiful places of escape. If it's business travel, it's time to think. If it's pleasure, the vacation begins when the wheels leave the ground.
Relevant to today, I love voting.
I love delving into a new subject - in 08 it's been the history of Paris and France, the dynasties, the revolutions and world wars and on. It's a turn on, like meeting a new, interesting person and learning more an more about him.
