Dreams

A child on a farm sees a plane fly overhead and dreams of far-away places.
A traveler on the plane sees the farmhouse and dreams…
of home.

I’ve been that child, and I’ve been that traveler.

I’m happy now, to be home.

    last night – night dream – flew to Kenya and back for “overnight” – just one day – in real life it is two days to get there and two more days to return – leaving in four weeks – for about a month in Kenya.

      I’d prefer that travel like that stay in my dreams. But at least you’ll be there long enough to let your body adjust. I used to drink a lot of coffee when I traveled like that.

      I came across that quote and realized that it applied directly to me. I’ve been a barefoot farmboy watching a plane overhead and dreaming of travel and I’ve been a stressed-out traveler looking out of a plane window and dreaming of home.

      Whenever I feel a little tug of discontent, I try to remember that.
