(“Alexandra Leaving” is a Leonard Cohen song – one that he sang last night. Sigh.)
I took Alekka to Heathrow this morning. She is off to spend the rest of her summer in Oregon with her sister and other assorted siblings and friends.
She was a little nervous about the trip – her first time traveling alone – but I’m confident she’ll do just fine and it will be a great experience for her.
As we entered the airport from the train station, a young woman with red hair walking toward us glanced our way, then away. Alekka murmured… “Mom… that was Amy Pond.” Now if that’s not a good travel omen, I don’t know what is.
