Into the sky once more
As morning breaks, I find myself once again packing my bags and heading out the door. I'm flying out to Boston for a couple of days, and hope to get at least an hour or so to myself so that I can walk around and explore.
I'll be back tomorrow night, which means I'll be away from home for only one sleep. Despite the brevity of the trip, I still find myself wondering what I'll miss, regretting that I'll lose a tuck-in at home. Even one night away from home is too much.
About the picture: Taken from my parents' balcony just after sunset. As I took the picture, I thought about the distant contrails and what they represented. For some passengers, it meant they were almost home. For others, quite the opposite.
May the trails you streak across the sky ultimately take you home to what matters most.
E-see you from America.
