I love to travel. However, there comes a time in the preparation for every journey when I get completely overwhelmed by logistics, and by the ideas that the whole trip is time wasted, that it’s money wasted, and that I just shouldn’t be going.

But then I get a bit closer and the lists of things start to fall away: the last library books checked in, the last shopping trip, the last load of laundry. And things begin to get lighter: the keys removed from the chain, the todo list pruned, the cards removed from the wallet: every moment a little lighter until I’m gone.
