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.
