The alarm clock began to buzz and the sheets around me began to shift. The weight of 5am pressing upon my chest, it was time to rise. It was time to go home. Stumbling to my bags, I managed to dress. Pushing and pulling luggage to make my way onto the elevator, into the car and eventually into the airport, through security and seated at my gate.
A song in the back of my head. Hello beauty, hello wonder, what is your name?
Waiting in the airport, coffee settling into my blood stream and making it’s way to waken my heart, I watch streams of people pass by. Bags in tote. Destination determined.
Moments in between, tempted to fast forward, desperately wanting to see ahead.
The destination unknown.
Bag in tote. I am waiting with a song in the back of my head.
What is your name?”
It is something new everyday.
