A Long Day of Travel

Monday, December 27, 2010

A view from the car on the way home to NYC.

Aloha gang!

I’m writing this to you from my cozy little apartment in a very snowy NYC.

And I’m so happy to be home!

My partner-in-crime and I (& Thomas the Cat!)had a great holiday in Pittsburgh with the family. Our trip to Pennsylvania was so easy. The drive was smooth and uneventful. We made it in record time.

And today–well–that was another story.

I’m sure someday we’ll look back on the events of the day and laugh. It really was a comedy of errors in the truest sense. We started the day with a mishap at a gas station and ended the day a mere 12 hours later with a mishap at the car rental location.

After that, we started to laugh. (Laughter is good medicine!)

The ridiculousness continued on the subway ride home. (Yes…a blizzard affects even the SUBWAYS in New York City!) So while we crawled at a snail’s pace, we talked about the days events.

My favorite part of the day was listening to AWESOME MUSIC while we made our way along what felt like endless miles of road.

We both love music–we sang along to some of it and just listened to others. Songs reminded us of times in the past when we’d first heard them. Music became a catalyst for conversations. It was the best part of the day!

I know that our long day was NOTHING compared to what some of our friends are experiencing at the airports and all of the flight cancellation fiascos that the weather has brought. I hope they all have access to some good tunes! It really helped.

As always, I believe music is a powerful medium.

It’s medicine for me. It certainly helps me feel better!

And I’m so thankful to home. Safe and sound.

Sending you all warm Aloha.

A hui hou…

Jason
