On Leaving America – Part 44

The End Is Here Last Look - Seattle Saying goodbye to Seattle:Well, it’s been okay here. There was culture enough: operas—saw a dozen with my wife, some great comedians: Harvey Korman & Tim Conway, Lewis Black—Chris Rock. There were symphonies, great restaurants and lots of writers . . . artists (big on glass here). Lots of rain. We will be trading that for snow—which needs to be shoveled. Ummm . . . . The weather isn’t really all that bad here, rarely freezes. Below zero will require getting used to—and so many other things.

The aircraft’s mighty engines drone some thirty thousand feet above the earth—six hundred miles and hour . . . the hush of night. It’s late. Some passengers watch airplane movies, others sleep. Wife in the seat beside me. Cats between our feet. In ten more hours we’ll land in Paris, then change planes and travel on to Stockholm, then a two hour train ride and Part 2 of this adventure will begin.

    Hi, Bruce. I read this yesterday in an email notification. When I tried to access, the post was unavailable. Perhaps it was in transit much like you on the airplane. I do hope this message finds all well and the cats adjusting as best as animals can. I cannot imagine what you are experiencing at the moment. Looking forward to hearing from you soon. 🙂
