Sat at a Window
My default choice when flying is to select a window seat.
Not so much to see where I’m going but to see where I’ve been. Not in a wistful or sentimental way but to prepare for the next journey.
Any emotions that I have for a place tend to show up when I’m looking at the photos from a trip long after they’ve been captured.
Like this one from seat 22J on an Airbus 350 from Incheon to Atlanta.
There’s almost nothing that I don’t miss about my time in Seoul. I loved every minute. I relished being a visible outsider and a complete stranger.
Being able to live in such a different place, even for a brief time, was revelatory.
I miss the food, I miss the people and I miss the fact that every single experience was completely new.
I can’t wait to go back.
P.S. I think this snap might be on par with those privately published by “Sat at a Window” on Instagram. Give him a follow and see for yourself.
