Leaving on a Jet Plane

Colorado Springs Airport. Nice enough place, but I’m sorry to be stuck here for an hour. I was up at 3:30am to get here — didn’t reach the airport until 4:10 or so, and then took an hour to get through security. One womantried to bring her makeup kit through. I think it got thrown away.

I fly from Colorado Springs to Atlanta, and then from Atlanta to Hartford. I’ll be in CT and on the ground by 3:00-ish, and home by 4:30ish. Leah comes home from her women’s group meeting around 8. She wanted to come pick me up at the airport, but frankly I think her women’s group is more important than being my chauffeur.

Today is the feast of the Lights of Isis, and tomorrow is the Feast of Hecate. Both festivals are about completion and endings, and it seems appropriate given the work I’ve been doing to get to celebrate these days with an ending to my fencing training, and the beginning of my fencing teaching anew. There will be poetry for both days later; right now I’m going to catch up on my Full Moon and Nones poetry.
