Beam Me up Scotty….

Beam me up Scotty…an iconic line from StarTrek…one I have related to forever it seems…more so now…so much more longingly…I am however told most gently and lovingly…not in your lifetime Mother…I realize and acknowledge this…albeit sadly..and enviously for an Age when this will be a reality…

In this age of increased and frequent air travel…when so many of our loved ones have taken the world being a Global Village so much to heart and so literally…air travel to various and random parts of the world is now done spontaneously…unthinkingly…frequently…comfortably…for me however , the Beam me up Scotty scenario still remains too elusively distant…

Air travel although faster…easier…and so much more comfortable physically is no longer the fun experience it used to be…age it seems creeps up on you in so many unwelcome and insidious ways…manifesting itself prominently so in extended air travel with all its related preparation and stress…

The world is definitely so much more the Global Village today than it has ever been before…it does however come at a price…a decreased dispensation of courtesy…acceptance…civility…a harsh reality of the times we live in…and hence..the wistful longing for a Beam me up Scotty scenario…just before an extended air journey…
