The flight was delayed, and I got home over two hours later than anticipated, but I'm back in Chicago! The flight was rendered more "interesting" by the guy in the middle seat, who had evidently planned to hunker down for the entire 3.5 hour (which became 5.5 hour) flight with his "Penthouse" magazine. Until I got to the aisle seat. Which didn't inspire him to put the magazine away, but it did rather encourage him to focus on the "articles." I did my best in that regard, too: pulling out my New Testament, I looked for my favorite bookmark: a reproduction of the famous icon from the Mt. Sinai monastery of St. Catherine. (It's on the opening page of my much-neglected website.) I made sure that Jesus was facing the middle seat. All the time.
Now, "catch-up" time!
