I saw the world traveler pushing her dog in a baby stroller today; she looked tired and old…
” Good morning. ” I offered. Couldn’t remember her name. The dog’s name is Ducae. ” Any summer trips planned?”
She smiled. ” I’m leaving for Los Angeles for a week and then Spain for 2 months… I don’t like cottages. ” Her expression changed; serious… ” I’m tired of traveling, I’m tired of living out of a suitcase. Do you ever get like that; road weary?
“Sometimes I just feel like staying home.” Her expression changed again; my NO registered.
” Now that I am familiar with… I like being home.”
I wondered if I’d ever see her again.
