On being ... a wing and a prayer

By Ingrid Sapona

Face masks, check.

Hand sanitizer, check.

Sunscreen, check.

Sunglasses, check.

Hat, check

Trashy beach read, check.

Beach blanket, check.

Pool noodle to ensure beach blanket at least 6 feet from other beach blankets, check. 

I’m writing this in early January…. If all goes according to plan, which means I say Covid-free, the pilot and crew stay Covid-free, the weather cooperates and the plane takes off, by the time you read this I’ll be in a warmer climate. My plan is to socially distanced seaside for a few weeks. Of course, if there’s one thing we’ve all learned the past 22 months it’s that things don’t always go as planned. 

Anyway, if you don’t hear from me at the end of the month, assume my prayers were answered. If that’s the case, On being … will be on vacation till February 15th. Stay well…
