A moment after take-off, the plane’s wings dipped left, then right. There was quiet flying for a time, then another bout or two of bumpy air. Toward the end of the flight, the plane descended through clouds, leaping and lurching toward the runway as if it were off-roading. The wheels smacked the runway as if the pilot had stopped paying attention when the ground approached.

But then it all stopped, and the bell overhead told me it was time to disembark, to ready myself for the smoother path ahead of me.
