C’est le jour du grand départ! Nous sommes prêts, les sacs sont prêts aussi …

Comme toujours, j’ai un poids sur le coeur de laisser certaines personnes, pendant que je serai si loin. Mais LA ROUTE M’APPELLE! et c’est plus fort que tout. Tout à l’heure nous serons dans le feu de l’action : pousser, tirer, s’informer, faire la queue … et puis le bonheur d’être dans l’avion … c’est encore entre le rêve et la réalité … et je rêve!

4 months to go…

Today is the 9th of March, and in exactly four months we will be hitting the road!!!! (i am actually hitting the road — well, the air, to be more precise — today on my way back to NY from Paris, btw)

Excitement is building… the new tent… the more concrete planning… getting down to the practical questions…

And with good planning thus far, we can coast a little bit, doing our preparations at a leisurely pace from now until departure… Am feeling really positive!!!!

The Tickets…

We are all very busy with our respective work at the moment, but today Cactus Killer and I took some time out to get their tickets to NY for July. So we now have a definite timeframe! They arrive on 3 July and need to go back on 28 August… and in between we have the time to “get our kicks!”

Departures and Arrivals… hellos and goodbyes… We are so used to this by now… and yet the airport goodbye doesn’t really get easier!

Today Cactus Killer and Silly Squirrel went back to France. They won’t be back here in NY until just before our “grand depart” in July! (Of course we will all be seeing each other in the meantime… in fact, I will be joining them in Paris next week! but the next time I am picking them up at JFK it will be the run-up to departure… and we will all be pretty excited about it… and kind of crazed, too, I imagine)…

Anyway, i imagine that right about now they are somewhere over the Atlantic on their way to Paris. I am thinking of them and wishing them a safe and calm flight (and the chance to get a little sleep on the plane, too!!!!)
