Bags packed last night, except for last minute toiletries . . . presently they are waiting outside having received a Buddha blessing. My dear friend Peggy arrives absolutely on time to take me to the airport shuttle, which will whisk me to LAX for my flight to Dresden via Frankfurt.
The shuttle is on time and thanks to GPS and constant traffic updates, our driver transitions to surface roads to skirt several accidents along Hwy 405. Amazingly, we arrive at LAX on time!
When I made my plane reservation, I neglected to realize that my flight was several hours before that of Zelda and Tejomaya. Oh, well. . . I'll get in to Dresden a few hours earlier and have some one-on-one time with my god-daughter Juli!
By the way, I watched three interesting movies during the flight . . .
The third movie, during breakfast, was the French film Aurore: Fifty Springtimes, which is about a woman who is separated from her husband, has lost her job and been told she is going to be a grandmother . . . a sweet movie that is funny, poignant and very relatable. Sadly, we landed fourteen minutes before the movie ended . . . hopefully, it will still be on the docket during my return flight home so I find out how everything is resolved (or not)!
