Today I arrived in the “City of Angels”, Los Angeles, California at 7am. My 2 hour flight from Portland, Oregon was perfect timing to catch sun begin to peak over the horizon.
Flying always puts me in a place of reflection and consideration. When we take off I look at the ground below as the automobiles and trees grow smaller in view. I think about how so often the problems of our daily lives can seem overwhelming and huge to our individual experience, yet when taking a wider above-ground view a sense of trust envelopes me as I see the grand scale of life which is transpiring beyond what issues may have my current focus. I see that I am one small part of a beautiful orchestra playing their tune, playing our tune of humanity.
I arrived safely at Los Angeles International Airport with a new day beginning. I always like to arrive in new places as early as possible to begin a full day of experiencing life in a new place as soon as I get there. The infamous L.A. traffic did not disappoint. It took about 90 minutes to get to my friend’s place, 20 miles from the airport.
I hadn’t slept much the night before so I went to sleep pretty early that night. Now i’m ready and excited to see what day 2 in Los Angeles may hold…
