I've been traveling by air since I was a little kid. I would fly to my grandparents every year, and from age 8 on, I flew alone. (This was the 1970s, before the outrage brigade ruined everything) I was treated like royalty by the airlines. I was fascinated by planes and pilots and the view out the window and airports and all of it. And I was off to grandma and grandpa's! Without parents! Which meant getting spoiled with toys, eating out, always having 2 desserts, no chores, a swimming pool, etc. It was a magical time in my childhood. Fast forward to yesterday when my iPhone X arrived. The first thing I do when I get a new phone is try some new wallpaper. As I scrolled through my camera roll wallpaper collection, I kept stopping at the sky images and trying them. For some reason, seeing the sky images as my lock screen made me smile and feel oddly calm and happy. It wasn't til today that I figured out why... The notch has been part of my visual vernacular for most of my life, and I subconsciously associate it with the carefree days of childhood, looking out the airplane window, on my way to grandma and grandpa's. Jony Ive you sneaky bastard.
