A couple hours before departure and nothing quite says 'goodbye' like a quality 90% American beef patty--actually 3 patties, but that's beside the point*.  As I opened what would be my 7th and last remaining packet of ketchup, I remembered the many times before, sometimes with my family, sometimes alone, eating here, looking out-onto the runway at each embarking/arriving/debarking/deriving traveler(s).  Through the window next to us, Ryan and I looked out at the world operating outside--machinery, fueling, catering, and the newly installed 'direct tv and wireless internet' onboard the aircrafts.  Each takeoff and landing was each person's heading to or returning to--of some destination, seemingly 'home' to them.  Ryan and I stared out a while before leaving the 'main terminal'.  

Now at our gate, we can see the people we'll be traveling with--at least to Houston,TX--where we have the luxury of more quality American beef patties--I for one am excited, Ryan maybe not so much. The flight is delayed due to a lack of crew. Over the airport speakers they assured the passengers that it was a scheduling issue, and half the crew is just passing through security. To pass the time, Ryan has been reading from his new book, 'I, Rigoberta Menchu'*** prescribed by one of our WWU proffesors--I'm excited to hear all about it.  

Boarding begins. We fly out tonight, a waxwing above, witnessing the world below, trying to strain our-eyes through clouds and sky.
