Booking tickets again, and fantasizing about the time when I won't have to keep leaving my life, when my life will (mostly) be in one place, and the leaving will be about traveling for fun and visiting beloved people or just escaping winter. For 24 years, I have done some form of back-and-forth, and I don't want that anymore. I don't want to have to debate which events are important enough to warrant a trip. I want to be there for the weddings and funerals, birthdays, holidays, school plays, ballet recitals and soccer games. There. I said it.
