the thrill of arrival
[having a chocolate chip cookie and coffee for breakfast]
in about an hour my lovely one will be landing in india, and i've been quite the global voyeur keeping track of his flight path [technology is amazing!]. i'm filled with anticipation just thinking about his arrival. to me, landing in a foreign country is an experience like none other; i was never able to fully articulate the power of this feeling until a friend directed me to pico iyer's pitch-perfect description of those first few moments in "the thrill of arrival".
this weekend i'm freshening up my line of children's stationery, and of course, i'm feeling a little lonely... but also excited for the fresh pieces of inspiration that will no doubt flow into artsyville soon from foreign lands. happy saturday to you all :)
UPDATE: i just noticed there's no landing gear on this plane. now that would be an arrival to remember.
