Sat., 12/03/11, 8:20 AM Pacific Standard Time

In the air, somewhere over the Pacific. Nine hours down, five to go on this second flight. I am now suspended, along with my cabin mates, in that fast-paced limbo between continents and days, hurtling forward 16 time zones in 14 hours while flying west. When I arrive, I will have covered 8370 miles from Saint Louis to Taipei.
