On 18 March we flew from Perth in Western Australia to Melbourne in Victoria to attend a family funeral. I always find flying to be close to being magical – the idea of defying gravity and traveling at such speed across the country. Most of the journey is over the Great Australian Bight in the Southern Ocean so it is always a relief to see land below. I can’t help but see the world differently from this perspective – I can imagine us all going about our daily lives only being aware of what is in our immediate vicinity with everything seeming so very urgent and important.
It is good to get the bigger picture sometimes.
