I am headed to a couple of cities this week with Houston on the first stop and then rounding out the week with a presentation at an event in Los Angeles. I have been used to the travel schedule and working my way in and out of airports. To me it has become second nature to go through the security checkpoints and sitting on a flight taking notes, doing expense reports and in fact even typing blog posts. My daughter on the other hand is not so used to the idea of "travel".
I had to first explain the idea of falling from the sky at 5,000 fee or 35,000 feet. It doesn’t really matter once you hit earth from either elevation. I think she is still wrapping her head around that concept. So much for the laws of physics. It is her birthday which is why she gets a chance to travel on a quick overnight and a short time with her grandmother in Houston.
I love travel and I get a chance to see a number of different places. It looks as tough my year will end somewhere like it began with a trip to Las Vegas. I am also looking forward to getting back to Hawaii. I will be headed there in November and this time I have no choice but to include my wife on the trip. I wonder if she too will grasp the idea of what happens when you careen into the earth from either 5,000 feet or 35,000 feet. Let’s hope I never have to try the theory.
