Toronto, ON, May 2007 [Click to embiggen]

One of the things I loved about being a globetrotting analyst was the flying. One of the things I hated about it was flying alone. Hanging out in strange airports and having no one to interact with for hours on end gave me lots of time to stare out the windows with a sense of fascination and wonder not too far removed from that of our children.

I was on my way to China on this morning, moving through Toronto's Pearson International Airport to catch the second of three flights that would take me further from home than I had ever been. For some reason, my eye kept falling on things that said "Canada". I guess I really am a homebody after all.

Your turn: Please suggest a caption for this image. Submit as many comments as you wish. I'll announce the winner next week.

About last week's image of an alleyway in London: A mysterious bricked-in pathway just off an old street resulted in some compellingly brilliant and diverse suggestions. Heidi takes it this week with this wonderful phrase: "But the gateway to life is small, and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it."

Honorable mentions also go to:
  • Judy: "This way to The Really Secret Garden!"
  • Wendy: "Gateway to adventure"
  • Mom: "Enter at your own risk."
  • Terri: "May your path be long...and not end with a closed gate."
  • Miss Meliss: "Urban Hideaway"
  • Moon: "It's the simple paths that lead us to the most magnificant of places."
  • d.o.m. dan: "Where the streets have no name"
  • BreadBox: "Forbidding gate, secret garden...."
Thank you again, everyone, for playing week after week and turning this into a highlight for me and my family. We love reading your creative suggestions. Here's to many more...

Turn this crazy bird around.

Longer Version
Turn this crazy bird around; Should not have got on this flight tonight. I'm drinkin' sweet champagne got the headphones up high; can't numb you, can't drum you out of my mind.

'Fly Air Canada - we have lots of planes!'

I just thought 'commercial' with Air Canada splashed over the photo...

Sara said...

Hello, Michele sent me to try my hand at writing a caption...

"Even when we're up in the air - we are still at home."

Don't even ask where that came from!!! No idea!

I find that I'm terrible at this Carmi, but wanted to post a comment so you would know I lurk your site :)

Hope all is well with you and yours.

I don't really have a caption but Joni Mitchell's song is running through my mind.... On the back of a cartoon coaster ... in the blue TV screen light .... I drew a map of Canada ... Oh, Canada ... with your face sketched on it twice.

From one of my favorites: A Case of You.

Having just braved the travel nightmare of the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday myself, and taking a cue from previous submissions:

Short version:
Leavin' on a jet plane

Long version:
I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh, babe, I hate to go...
