Almost On the Road

Before leaving home, I toss and turn and finally am up early as soon as the papers hit the front door.  The rhythm of daily life is interrupted abruptly.  The craving for departure makes sense and these cave-ins of consciousness and routine are the first, necessary baby steps.

I avoid all caffeine before flying.  My next cup will be 48 hours from now on Awaji island.

Prior, to that I’m flying to NYC and changing planes to take an ANA flight direct to Narita.

Full disclosure: I’m a guest of the airline (ANA) , the Japanese National Tourism Organization (JNTO), and Relais & Chateaux (R&C).

So thanks to ANA, JNTO, & R&C.

It’s the passivity of travel I enjoy most.
