My Reason For Being Here is Out There Somewhere

leave a comment »


My flight to Phoenix is less than a minute from landing at Sky Harbor International Airport.

I’ve never lived here, but have visited enough to recognize that we’re flying over the north edge of the campus of Arizona State University.

Somewhere out there is the reason why I’m on this plane. My father, sister, brother-in-law and niece all live in in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

We once all lived in east central Illinois, but now I’m the outlier of the family because I live in northeast Ohio.

My Dad has an apartment that looks out on those mountains in the distance.

We’ll land, gather our luggage, pick up a rental car and drive to his apartment to see it for the first time. Another visit with family in Arizona is just getting underway.
