I Fly Wednesday!


Good news! I’ve got a standby ticket and should be able to fly out this Wednesday!

All of this has felt so surreal the last few weeks… I’ve been going through the motions and getting ready to leave but it wasn’t fully sinking it. When my Mom told me this morning that her flight attendant friend looked at flight information and said this Wednesday should work it really hit me!

In less than 1week I will no longer be in California anymore…. my first reaction was “I’m so sad!!!!” I’m very excited to go see my relatives and to start a new life in France, but I’m also really going to miss California! I’ve lived here for 10 years; California has become home!

I'm really excited, but also really sad

It feels very bitter-sweet.

This means you all need to hurry up if you still want to see me! I’m free Saturday afternoon and Sunday in San Jose and then will come back to Livermore/Pleasanton Tuesday, if not Monday.

  1. GREAT that you’ve received your ticket!

    Your bitter-sweet is only natural!!

    Just think: get a place with a sofa-bed in GAY Paree and your Calif friends can visit you!!!

    Recall how I felt just prior to my departure for Paris in September 2005: Excited, sad & afraid. I had no family in Paris and only one acquaintance.

    Pairs was The _City-o-Light_ where, on 30 April 2005, my first day in Paris/France, with the famed Chestnuts-in-Blossom, I felt I had been born.

    You are fortunate, for as Hemingway wrote in _The Movable Feast_:

    “If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a movable feast.”

    Now transiting in Dubai International Airport en route to Moscow to change planes later today for St. Petersberg. However, my heart is with You!

    EnJoY AllWays!!

  6. There is not a “force” in the universe “luck” that floats around attaching itself to individuals giving Pleasurefications or pain!

    There is only random chance and our individual choices!!
