Lighten Up!

And suitcases…too many to count, multiplying in the attic like a science fiction movie. Where did 20+ suitcases come from? Admittedly we travel a lot and have done so for many years. Also, the size restrictions have made it almost an impossibility to keep up with changing regulations for check in and carry on. Too big, too small – feels like Goldilocks, tortured to find the perfect piece…for now. Is it identifiable?

• Who else would have a red suitcase with a day-glow green tag? • What are we ignoring? • Holding onto? • Prepared for anything? What emergency? • Too many novel story lines. The glamour of sashaying through an airport looking ever so put together, lightly pulling the perfectly sized piece is an image for the big screen. • Reality. More like dragging, pulling, and negotiating the byzantine JFK check-in procedures/process. This is not 1960! And airports…Imagining the places you could be and the experiences you could have. People leaving + returning = adventure.

Readying the bags for donations or trash day. Someone out there will love and feeling lighter already!
