We Can Hang A Sign On The Door That Says 'Please Do Not Disturb'

It was cramped and dim - a gray cube lit only by a few florescent bulbs. There was barely enough room to turn around with the acrid smell of chemical disinfectant floating through the air. An overwhelming uneasiness consumed the small environment as the floor felt like it would never stop moving.

I knelt and prayed as best as I could.

As Maui disappeared from view, I hoped for nothing more than to not throw up in the first class lavatory. I came back to my seat so overwelmed by the flu-like feeling that I hid my face and cried.

I spent the rest of the flight clutching an airsick bag - thankfully not needing to put it to use - and fitfully trying to sleep.

It was not a great way to end 9 days in paradise, and just a hint at how the return trip would go. But I am home now, and no longer in paradise where I spent my time taking pictures of sea turtles instead of blogging.

I am sad to leave Hawaii behind but I am glad to be home.

So that's where you were! I forgot about that. So you have to email me and tell me how you liked it and what's new in Maui!

I wish I were in hawaii, alas, I am in Alaska in the cold. Man, it's cold. I just keep thinking, $$$ because somehow I'll have to pay for all those new spending plans in the new congress.
