It's all about how you look at it

Last week I took my daughter to the airport. should've been a pretty simple task. Drive to the airport, see her off, drive home. But, there was one problem. My car is DOA so one of my friends was kind enough to drive me. He had a pretty hectic schedule that day though, so my daughter and I were dropped of about 5am for her 7am flight and I was picked up later at almost 11am. 6 whole hours in the airport. The first 2 of which were spent going thru security, getting my daughter checked in, and then waiting with her until boarding. The last 4 hours were all mine. You would think that I would be bored out of my mind. I loved every minute of it.

My other daughter was spending the day with a neighbor. I had no one to cook for, no ringing phone demanding to be answered, no one to bother me at all. I grabbed a coffee, curled up with a good book near the large windows in the food court, and let my mind wander as I listened to the hum of the planes in the background. It was like a day at the spa without having hot wax poured all over me. It was utterly peaceful.

So you see, even the most hectic of places can become a place of peace and solitude if your mindset is right. A good book and a nice cup of coffee help too. (I was reading The DaVinci Code and the coffee, a caramel machiato)

the most peaceful places for me are in crowds ... always been that way. somehow i'm able to focus more with all the movement ... the white noise ... the sense of all the things that are happening and don't involve me in any way ...

(as a sidenote, it's a good thing seatac finally remodeled ...)

Very interesting... I just wrote several blog entries that are about the airport. I am currently on a visit to the east coast, and I am enjoying my airport time, too... But I am also looking at it from a flirty point of view, and in that framework, it's leaving a little to be desired...

Please check these out...

I just recently finished reading The DaVinci Code. Coincidentally I started reading it in an airport, too. Great read.
