Chopped Liver – Blowin’ In The Wind

There is a phrase in common use that recent events have brought closer to reality.

It is “You don’t know what you’ve got till its gone”.

Now take this volcanic ash business – nobody could have forseen the amount of devastation this must be causing to many people’s lives. Millions of people and thousands of aircraft are now in countries they shouldn’t be in – people are suffering, healthwise, financially, emotionally – and there is no end in sight.

Apparently the last time this particular volcano erupted, it spewed out ash for a year!

Look, maybe this will all blow over (HA!) in a couple of days and be a forgotten footnote in the year-end’s summary collage – but maybe not. Maybe we will be put off flying. Maybe airlines will go out of business. Maybe their will be no flights into and out of Northern Europe for weeks or months?

What does it mean? What could it mean?

The answer, my friend is blowin’ in the wind.

Maybe they wont be able to fly my new liver to meet its new owner in time?

We have become dependant on flying. When there was a terrorist threat, they brought in measures that many of us didn’t appreciate as it would delay us – e.g. No liquids, no hand luggage, extra screening, full body screening – we didn’t too much care for these measures, but we understood their necessity. But we don’t even voice our concerns at this – simply beacause the whole of Northern Europe are not flying! There is nothing we can do – there are no flights!

Just what long term effect will there be? We can only guess.

Watch this (air) space.
