I've seen a tumbleweed in Albuquerque, sat in the hot tub at sunset, watched the whole sky light up orange and pink. I saw the rain in Seattle, and tall evergreens. I slept on the train to Oregon. I met Angie, and Allegra, and shared food and laughs and champagne with them.
I met an old friend last night turned funny new flame --at least, as bright as it burned in one night.
And now I am in the airport, my meetings over, and my eyes tired from absolutely NO sleep last night. At all.
The term "sleepless in seattle" has taken on an entirely new meaning....
I think this is the best way to go though....sleep-deprived and comfy in my fleece jacket and carrying my pillow. I hope to sleep ALL night in a cramped airplane seat with my ipod on classical music, my mind full of new stories, and my heart--full. So full.
3000 miles away isn't that far, really; really at all.
(Yes, I took this with my cell phone. While IN flight. Don't tell the FAA)
PS --Angie, Allegra -I got a new backpack to replace my broken one. And Angie, check your car...I left my sunglasses either there or in the restaurant we went to for lunch. Ask for them in the lost and found, and they can be yours :)
