Many More Miles Than Steps

During the past week I have traveled over six thousand miles taking no more than five thousand steps.  Travel these days is interesting in more ways than that bit of mundane information.  We are a people on the go and will put up with practically any inconvenience or humiliation to get to wherever it is we need or want to go.  Today I flew with several screaming babies.  Perhaps it was the free Scotch but I didn't find them irritating.  Instead, I wanted to comfort their parent(s) who must have felt quite tense about the whole thing.  As for me, I simply turned up the volume on my iPod and enjoyed the flight.  And the Scotch.
