I should have driven to Ohio – would have gotten here faster. Yesterday’s trip started in Syracuse, went to LaGuardia (NYC), Philly, then Akron. In LaGuardia we had to wait while they loaded our plane with sandbags. Bad passengers! We didn’t pack enough luggage. And then we sat on the runway… to punish us, I guess. I am working very hard to block the trauma and delays at the Philly airport, so I’m not going into it yet.
But my fellow passengers on Surreal Air were as bemused as I was, so the stress level was low. And I got here, which was the point.
I leave in a few minutes for Timken High. The plan for the day is a little different than my usual school visits. I’m really excited to see how it’s going to go. Plus, I’m jazzed about meeting some of the artists at this school. I’ve seen some of their work, and they are wicked talented.
