Look in all directions

May 10, 2008

The solar system orbits above the waiting area. I can’t remember when I first noticed it, but I know I had been coming in and out of this airport for months. Possibly years. To those who look straight ahead, the only sign its there stands on a stanchion tucked by the window.

Until I looked up at the sienna-gold sun that caught my eye, there had been worlds up there I had managed to miss. I made a point, after that, to look in all directions.
