Passing Time on a Plane by Dalila Eckstein | Mar 20, 2016 | Musings, My Life, Teaching, Writing | 8 comments Share this:TwitterFacebookGoogle 8 Comments arjeha on March 20, 2016 at 2:43 pm I love how you did this. I have never been on a plane for any extended length of time – 6 hours max. I find your thoughts interesting especially since we have a long trip coming up this summer. Reply bjdonalson on March 20, 2016 at 5:44 pm It is wonderful that you are journaling on your adventure! It must have been spectacular for anyone to see icebergs. Thanks for sharing. Reply Emily on March 20, 2016 at 6:11 pm Oh, enjoy your time in Asia! Remember, no matter how long the flight, it DOES end!! And it’s totally worth it! (I admire your dedication writing in a paper journal to upload it!) Reply Aileen Hower on March 20, 2016 at 7:03 pm I am living vicariously through your journaling posts. Thank you. I think that regularity and time are a part of the answer to helping others become writers. We cannot run a marathon by running once or twice for a few minutes before the race. One of the reasons I love slicing every day in March. Safe travels. Reply Lori Sheroan on March 20, 2016 at 8:40 pm I found this slice so interesting! It’s as if you are trapped in a timeless space with your focus solely on writing and thinking. I love it! When I asked my students how much time they actually spend thinking each day, I was surprised by their answer – about 20 minutes!!! We need to give our students time to think so they can, in turn, write!!!! Reply Sally on March 21, 2016 at 12:01 am I love traveling with you via your writing, Dalila! I’ve been in that limbo time on a plane when you’re not sure what to do – sleep or stay awake. I’m glad you chose to stay awake to write. Icebergs and Russia and deep thoughts! What a special slice. Safe travels and happy landing. Reply Mary Hill on March 21, 2016 at 2:24 am Great way to capture your ideas about writing as time seemed to stand still on a long flight. You captured the essence of writing as thinking. I could see your thoughts unfold as you by hand your thoughts forming in your mind.
