Vermont: and a Far Off Place Called Jakarta

I boarded the plane.  Oh, it was more than a day ago.  And I was not happy.  Not happy to be facing 26 hours of travel.  Not happy to be away from the kids.  Again.  You see, I have been away too much this year and it is hard.  Hard on them.  Hard on my wonderful husband.  Hard on my aging body.

So , here it is 530 am in this far off place called Jakarta and I can't sleep.  Too much on my mind.  Too many worries that I tried to leave at home that traveled with me on the plane.

Like Hurricane Sandy and our house in New York.  Friends still without power.  People hurting and homeless.
