I have a full day ahead of me, but these words were playing in my head as I was munching on my morning muffin.
Now arrived today.
I did not recognize her at first.
In the distance I saw a faint figure,
Patiently waiting for her luggage by the carousel,
Methodically lifting suitcase after suitcase off the belt.
All I could think about was this stranger’s luggage fee.
But getting closer, she began to look vaguely familiar to me,
Not quite what I expected from our decades of letters
Or years of blog entries.
But yes, this was indeed Now.
How, I asked myself, do we begin this new conversation?
