Rockin’ the 902: I may be here for awhile (Now with new updates)

I got up this morning at an insanely early hour. Drove all night from Cape Breton to the Halifax airport. Thank god for Timmy’s double-doubles. (The crack cocaine of the coffee world.)

Turns out now that the first two flights this morning to LaGuardia (including the one I was booked on) have been cancelled due to fog in NYC. I don’t know how this is going to go; I’m supposed to be back at the office tomorrow.

Life is interesting, ain’t it?! As John Lennon sang: life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.

I was thinking on the drive here that this is the theme song of my trip. With this new information, it seems more accurate than ever.

I had a dream I was moving forward
Floating gently to the sun
I’ve come to see my world rewarded
A new day has begun

A lost bird caught in mid-migration
Far away to a foreign land
Offspring of a secret nation
A new day has begun

I can see the earth below me
And I can
Feel it turn

Fog lifts to reveal potential
For generations prophesied
Our growth to be exponential
Our promise finally realized

I can see the earth below me
And I can
Feel it turn
Across the sky
The world it learns
So must I

Cut steel wired into water
Fixed link, circumnavigate
Old men see your sons and daughters
No longer, no longer hesitate

I can see the earth below me
And I can
Feel it turn
Across the sky
The world it learns
So must I

(Update: things are looking up. Thanks to a very helpful Delta employee, I’ll probably be on a flight that leaves at about 10:45.  Stay tuned for further bulletins.)

(Update II: After more than 24 hours awake, back again in my warm’n’snuggly home. Back to work tomorrow. More later.)

  1. Well, I’m sure leaving is bittersweet. I have really enjoyed the blog updates on the trip. It sounds like it’s exactly what you wanted, expected, and needed, and you can’t ask for more than that from a week in your life. The photographs and the music make me want to wander those coastlines some day. Thanks for taking the time to update us. And in a few short hours, welcome back to the U.S. I wish I had something more pithy to say, but it is home.
