A short check-in. I am sitting at a desk in my room at the home of Dave and Joyce Owen. The flights were easy and the extra seat on the Hawaii-Guam leg really was a blessing (all the sitting set the sciatica to screaming) and I could now contort, squirm and pretzel myself silly without bothering anyone!!
Wonderful chats with folks along the way, flight attendants and fellow travelers - including a young Chamorro woman who expressed interest in going to college....I've invited her to come see the campus!
The balmy, breezy tropical air enveloped me as I stepped out of the airport to wait for Mike Owen to pick me up. It took a little while and I reminded myself that it was 'island time' now and he'd arrive whenever he arrived so.....I just enjoyed the breeze.
I felt it....that peace....that past all understanding peace....the adventure begins.
