ARE YOU LOOKING AT THE SKY ?

11/27/2009 § 2 Comments

my sister and i arrived at penn station early, which meant sausage mcmuffin time at mickey d’s. i was thankful for that. on our way to the airport, my side of the train looked out onto fields of long grass and small creeks reflecting the trees around it. i was thankful for that.

we arrived at the airport so early we were able to hop on an earlier flight. i was thankful for that. the two opened seats on that flight were at the very front, and next to each other. i was thankful for that. we arrived in dallas two hours earlier which meant more time at home, yay. i was thankful for that. the family was able to pick us up at this earlier time which meant more time with each other. i was thankful for that.

we piled into the car and traded stories all the way out of the airport. i was thankful for that. i received good wishes from friends near and far. i was thankful for that. we were soon greeted by the texas highway and its wide open spaces. i was thankful for that.

my mom spoke up as she saw me stare out of the window:

“are you looking at the sky, my daughter ?
you love the sky so much. it is so big.”

i smiled. it really is, mom. i’m thankful for that. and everything that comes with it.

happy thanksgiving.

    i’m thankful that you’re happy right now
    and i’m thankful that somehow we met
    and i’m thankful that we’ll meet again
    and maybe continue our convo begun @bowery
    perched beneath shelves of crazy-titled books!
