What is your airplane ritual? IPod? Sleep? Sweat Pants? Alcohol? Spill the beans.
Find the right aisle seat, turn on the air and make sure it’s blowing ever so gently across my face, pay attention to the exits, listen to the emergency instructions because I don’t take that stuff for granted. A prayer during take off, then I fire up the Ipod.

I don’t sing in the shower. I brainstorm.

NYC! All day, everyday.
