NYC Bound . . . Anticipation!

So many interesting ideas . .

Our airport does sleep at night. There is a consequence to being “too early”. It’s called, “hurry up and wait.”

people reading. . .




laptops, and


Many clutching cups of coffee

or foil wrapped pouches.

quietly waiting

quietly visiting


and waiting.

too early to board,


anxiously awaiting departure time.

the bright inside lights encroaching on the outside DARKNESS.

Zero dark thirty,

Early morning flights,



where is that anticipated boarding announcement?

mentally, time to go…

physically, ready to return to sleep. . .

not YET ready for true wakefulness and conversation.

writing, yes even blogging to AVOID pre-dawn conversation . . .

announcements become more frequent,

the flight crew arrives,

and YET

10 more minutes until boarding begins . . .
