The Thrilling Touchdown

What is the worst possible scenario you could think of while flying on a plane? Smoke in the cabin? Obscure windshield? Engine failure? Cabin depressurization? Imagine all of the mentioned scenario happening sequentially one after the other and yet the pilot manages to tackle all of it and make a touchdown. What a legendary landing would that be? This is a tale of how captain Eric Moody and first officer Roger Greaves landed the British Airways after being threatened by a number of obstacles.

MEASURING IN LIGHT

I had started to count kindness on my fingers. If you were like me, you barely got enough of it to fill in one hand, but I took what I could; I still do. I had learnt to lick it in scraps, taking whatever I could and storing it in a jar made of hope and I took a bit more out of it than I should have every time I was told I wasn’t enough. Which was every day.

The Stoic overflow

Silence is a feel-good way to spend some time when you are upset, but not until you start suppressing your agonies and hardships. This is when you become a stoic. You think a million times, overthink and rethink before you say something. And by the time it starts choking you, you’d regret not having expressed it earlier.

Caption: What was supposed to be a fun day at a swimming pool transformed and shaped the way I perceive humankind. The phrase ‘this is for your own good’ never meant the same anymore and I’ve never trusted anyone who said these words because what they mean to say is ‘this is for my own good’, to feed my ego and fulfill my wicked objectives and I will achieve this by convincing you that ‘it is for your own good’. The smoldering flame of resentment and the volcanic eruption of fury that comes to others when one doesn’t put their head down, nod and obey changes the course of life for those who are the victims.
