Thoughts from the first plane

Wrapped in love.

I sit here alone. Literally. Somehow I end up in a row all by myself. No chatty neighbors. No crying babies. All by myself. 

Yet, I'm not. I'm wrapped in love. Tears in my eyes. Excited for this adventure. Scared to miss those I love the most. 

I'm wrapped in gifts of love. 

A scarf from my mother, bought with my move in mind. "Every time you wear it, it will be like I'm hugging you" she said.

Tears fall. 

A ring, from the family. From my favorite jewelry store. Silver wraps around my finger, yet doesn't meet to close the circle.  On the ends... hearts.  Here and there. Me and them.

I am wrapped in their love - and couldn't be filled with more gratitude.    

America says...

Good Morning and Goodbye.

I believe everything happens for a reason... but really, what is the purpose of this:

This morning - the morning of my departure - I open the last of my U.S mail.  A ticket - From the City - for $154!!!

"What the F I say" - before 7 am - right in from of Mom and Dad.

While being the responsible sober designated driver, with my favorite high school comrades in the car, on the night of our 10 year reunion - I failed to come to a full and complete stop at 2:58 a.m. - on a deserted street - where I was harming no one - and I like to think saving some lives.

So really - thank you America.  Thank you traffic cameras.  

Good Morning and Goodbye to you too.
