    Most folks are afraid of flying. I’m not. The smaller, the better. Maybe it’s because I have a recurring dream that I die in a plane crash.

    I’m more afraid of getting in a car and driving on a Los Angeles freeway.

    My grandfather, an experienced single engine pilot, was piloting the experimental plane that had been doctored prior to his purchasing it the day it fell apart in the air around him on the afternoon of October 4, 2000. I was so struck by the beauty of the day, I can clearly remember saying to myself as I drove from law school to my part time job: “It’s a beautiful day to die.”

    Hours later, when I finally got home, listened to my uncle’s frantic message, called home and heard the news, I immediately remembered that moment, looking up into an indescribably gorgeous clear blue sky and speaking those words at what I later estimated to be about the same time he went down.

    Weird.

    At any rate, I hate flying. Really do. This post scared me to death.

    I’ve always been prepared to be on a flight that may not remain in the air, without fear. Until I read this article. It’s like the “Jaws” of blog posts.. not looking forward to next flight
