all in a day's work

I know someone who scrubs the kitchen when everything else seems resistant to change.

Another friend takes photos when the rest of life appears out of focus.

Today I spent hours looking at flights halfway around the world, flights I don't have the funds to purchase or the time to take. But I like knowing they're there. Alitalia, those layovers, those stamps wet on my passport all still a possibility. One day. Not today, with Logic and Reason keeping those dreams from leaving the gate. Today is call sheets and billings and only the mind allowed up in the air. But someday. Someday that final boarding call will include me.

And that someday is enough for today.


  1. So much said with so few words. Lovely. You are a master of metaphor, my friend.
