Sky watching at its best

read

I will be the first to admit, when it comes to flights, I’m like a kid in a candy store. My seats are always by windows. A window is a must! Not only does it provide 50% less elbow knocking space, I get the best view in the house for no additional cost. My very fav part […]

Upon doing a sweep with my eyes in every possible direction, undone things can feel like too much.  Unfortunately, in these cases, it’s a matter of getting out of the chair, and forcing myself.
