Big things happen in a Moment.

When we were thirteen, my generous twin brother had saved enough money from his Cleveland Plain Dealer paper route to buy tickets on Frontier Airlines for our very first flight to visit our oldest brother, based in Minot, ND.
(Yes, Minot).

On that take off, in that Moment, something altered in
my cells, my self.

It moved me then –

Top of the runway
anticipatory pause…
engines’ momentum
builds  speed
pavement blurs
body lifts   gravity defied


– It moves me still.


After university, I worked as a flight attendant.
My true bliss found at 35,000 feet altitude                                                                                                                                           oh that man, that Moment, soars into
twenty-five years of Sir surreal love.
another Moment, He dies

What to do? What to think? How to live?
I defy…keep on the fly…
a Human being? no, a Travel being .

Some wonder if
I’m running away.

I like to think I’m running toward…
