Up in the Air

Preparing for this trip, I’ve had a vision for two things: I want to write, and I want to connect with people.

I want the kind of connections with people where we have a lasting impact on one another. Where we find ourselves smiling knowingly, one day years later, as something reminds us of that random moment we shared on the road. The kind of connection that seems much more divine than coincidental; much more meaningful than circumstantial.

Before my flight even left JFK, the trip began with that kind of connection. We conversed in the dance you walk with someone with whom you’re about to share the next 10 hours in a confined space. Reveal a little. Conceal a lot. Ask questions. Open up. Retreat. Create distance. Discover. Revelation. Connect. Surprise. You’re kidding. Actually, I should confess… Me, too. Wow. Huh…

It was actually too special, too perfect, too significant to share with you. It was a gift. It was an answer to prayer. It was, I believe, a harbinger of things to come.
