Places to go, back to work


The lights began to come on down in the valley, then at mid-mountain, but up in the sky travellers - so many of them on this last day of vacation! - grabbed the light of day and kept flying with it. Unless they were going to Russia, as one plane appeared to be doing. The jet streams tonight didn't die away rapidly but faded into fat comfortable drifting bits, much like our memories of vacations just ending.

May you fly safely, those of you still in the skies! And to borrow an old Irish travellers phrase, may the wind be always at your back.
