Flying High in a Private Jet

Laura Notorangelo

Ever since I can remember, I've traveled to Michigan on the Fourth of July because the beaches are hiddgen gems! I've been fortunate to have sailed, wakeboarded and tubed on Lake Michigan. But there's something to be said for being high above the water.

I randomly had the opportunity to fly with my family! There was something ethereal about being so far away, yet close enough to observe the complicated, unpredictable and dynamic human experience in simple shapes and colors.

Everything looked so tranquil and perfect. It was one of the most peaceful things I've ever seen. Although I was pretty nervous about flying in a single-engine, four-person Cessna, I'm so glad I did. So my advice to you in whatever you're doing: go for it. Because a change in perspective is everything.
