If Only

There were many flights out of the northeast heading southwest on the morning I took this image.

Days like that bring back rich memories of when we often traveled in that direction in order to tour warmer climates in South and Central America.

I have no desire to take such long flights anymore.  A lot has changed, and I now think of all of the adverse affects on the climate brought about by such travelers as well as the cramped conditions on those airplanes for long periods.

We missed getting stuck in Peru for a week in 2001 because of terrorists.  Missed by one day.  Now one has to also be aware of pandemics, and wars, as well as our health and climate changes.

It would have been so much better for all if we all understood and took appropriate actions long ago.
