Morning in Moscow

10.29 a.m. at home is 6.29 a.m. the next morning in Moscow.

I enjoyed deep sleep for four hours, then fitful sleep until 6 when the body said ‘enough.’

The teakettle was boiling in due course.

So, with a cup of Nescafe in hand, and the curtains drawn back on a steel-gray Moscow morning, I am facing the day.

View from my hotel room.

Air Canada

I really like flying Air Canada!

And as I write whilst on a layover in Toronto, I’m grateful for:

  • books that move me to weep
  • blue skies
  • the fancy United Club card for which I pay annually, but which allows me access to Star Alliance clubs around the world
  • Morning Prayer
  • friends who schlep me to the airport at 7.30 a.m.
  • tulips
  • Wi-Fi
  • Auggie, with whom I had a tearful farewell (on my part, at least) on Tuesday
  • Bose noise-canceling headphones.
