Your article, like an abstract painting, is open to myriad interpretations and bears a private message to each reader. Love it! I read it twice to test my first impression. It connected to something I vowed to myself many years ago, that this life was one hell of an absurb and disappointing Club Med vacation (for which I paid waaaaay too much) and I wouldn’t be buying into that package again! No sir-ree….that plane can leave without me! And WOW, did that ever feel good…..your story brought back that same feeling! Thank you for this liberating reminder!
