... On a Jet Plane ...
Before I leave, I heard fom Joe early this morning. He sent me this article from the Philadelphia Inquirer. He said: "We acted at the right time, because now the word is out about how early you have to get there ... A bullet has been dodged, and it is just now sinking in how fortunate we are to have our passports." It says in the article: ... it practically requires a miracle ...
... I guess my trip has turned into a miracle!
I will be back in about ten days. I will surely not have access to Internet during the hike, but who knows what may happen before or after.
If I do find a computer somewhere along the way, I'll drop a line. Otherwise, I hope you will stop by when I return.
I will miss you.
But rest assured, I take all of you with me, for as adventures rise up to greet me, I will be thinking about how to describe them to you later.
I received this quote in my e-mail today and, after sharing it with you, have decided to take it with me on my trip:
Your life is the one place you have to spend yourself fully - wild, generous, drastic - in an unrationed profligacy of self. Robin Morgan
