How Well Do You Travel?
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." ... Matthew 7:7
So! It's a new week and Tom's back, though--get this--it took him 15 hours to arrive home from the San Francisco airport(!) A mule team might have been faster.
Yes, it was one of those nightmare plane trips where the only thing that went right is that the plane didn't crash.
In fact, I giggled while Tom described his trip to a co-worker over the phone. Tom said, "And once we had to circle an airport for an hour until they ran out of fuel."
Heh. Think about it.
Oh, and they lost his luggage. Not just his, but a whole crowd's who sent up a collective moan. Everyone had to fill out forms--at 4:00 a.m.. But all's well now--a guy brought Tom's suitcase here to the house yesterday afternoon. A pleasant surprise.
Anyway, Tom's working from home today because his back got messed up in all the stressful craziness which was the trip home.
But he still loves his job, so there's that. :)
I believe in seeking until you find. Being a worshipper rather than a whiner if the seeking takes forever. You know, travelling within the peace of (real)faith even on rocky roads. In happy anticipation of what's ahead.
But good grief.
You know those cozy, low-budget, dreamy documentaries I sometimes find for you guys at Netflix? Sheesh. Just unearthing one can require hours of searching. And, don't tell anyone, but often I find myself nearly cursing Netflix and the whole sorry 2016 film industry for cranking out drivel rather than beauty.
But yesterday I found one. A perfect documentary.
Another rare jewel, especially if you, like me, enjoy:
Old wallpapered houses
Family seashore vacations
Very bittersweet, though, but heavier on the sweet than bitter. Dreamy, soothing, mostly.
And I do apologize, Netflix. You're trying. I know.
In seeking as in finding,
Each detail minding,
Old Walt went seeking
― Langston Hughes
