My journey was as smooth as silk. On time flights, pleasant people to sit next to, and a 2.5 hour layover in Detroit where I found a Tex-Mex restaurant to get a frozen margarita (4 on my scale of 10) and a few exotic tacos. There I almost finished my Allende book...(the book that seemed bewitched...it seemed no matter how much I read it, I never got any further in it!) I also read this month's issue of Art News, which focused on artists and their contributions to being green and changing the way we interact with our environment.
The coolest part of the trip was the psychedelic tunnel at the Detroit airport, which changed colors while abstract New Age music played. I heard a few people on the plane laughing about it, as I don't think they got it at all, but I think it rocked. I took tons of photos in it, and they are tonight's work. Two are touched up a bit in Photoshop, and one is posted as is.
The best part of the trip was being greeted by my two girls, and Alanna came running at me full charge through the airport screaming "MIMI!" and threw herself into my arms. Then, when we got to Megan's apartment complex, which is inhabited by young Army families, I was "entertained" as soon as I stepped foot on the sidewalk. No lack of Southern hospitality here!
Off to go back outside, where it is over 80 degrees. I think I will come home with some color, though I am being careful not to burn as I am so pale compared to the rest of the folks down here.
Till tomorrow! Patti O Blissed Out Lounger!
