On the road again...

I'm sitting in the DCA airport, trying to post this before I have to rush onto the plane. I love airports. They make me so very happy. A friend recently asked me if I ever get "saddle sore," since I'm on the road so much. Yes... and no. Every time I pull out a suitcase to fly somewhere or set my alarm for 4am to drive somewhere, I think, "I don't know how much more I can handle." But all of that dissipates as soon as I get on the road or board the plane.

I love going. I love coming. I love being, and I love being away. I love the journey almost as much as I love the destination. I suppose it's only natural that I, a child of God on my way from this pseudo-reality and on to my real Home, should love the journey. Psalm 84:5 says "Blessed are those whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage." I think, then, that I am blessed.

Wonder where I'm going? My fabulous and amazing photography workshop school/group— the Institute in Photographic Studies (IPS)— is having a reunion for any former students. My favorite out-of-town people, all converging on the same little town at the same time, in a breathtaking location (Manitou Springs, Colorado)... who could dream of missing such a place? I'm excited.

I'll be without Internet for the next five days. If you need to contact me, call or text. If you don't have my number, then e-mail me and I'll get to you when I can. Until then, enjoy your weekend!
