Not My Seal of Approval

Posted on: January 23rd, 2012

I write this missive from the confines of my California king bed. Are you ill, Trav? No, not sick of the body, you see, but sick of the soul. I chanced upon a free article on a Gogo equipped flight yesterday, and was dismayed to learn that arguably the greatest love story of the 21st century is reportedly coming to a premature end. Seal, the golden voice of ‘Kiss from a Rose,’ and Heidi Klum, sartorial host of ‘Project Runway,’ are separating.

The voice of my dear mother echoes in my mind during times of disappointment: The only constant is change, Trav. I have to remind myself that the hosts of fashion shows and British neo-soul singers are mere mortals, prone to the same pitfalls as the rest of us. Don’t let news of a fading love stop you from boarding your plane today, travelers. Take a moment, after the flight attendant gives permission, to log on to Gogo and remind your loved ones how much you anticipate a sweet reunion. And remember, that while some things in the air are free, you may find yourself paying for them in other currency. In this case, dare I say, tears?
