I'm typing this from the Alaska Terminal at Sea-Tac Airport this evening. I had absolutely no idea i would be here today. I didn't expect to wake up this morning and find myself in the place in life I was in. Equally as much, I didn't expect that by about noon, I'd be booked a flight to Phoenix, departing this evening at 6:10 PM out of Yakima. I was given the opportunity to help my family out in moving from one house to another down in Arizona and rather than spend the week by myself, I knew what my only option was. This wasn't "my plan" but I'm constantly reminded of the fact that there IS a plan and most of the time, it's as of yet unknown to me. So, I found myself with about 4 hours total to finish some editing work at Starbucks before heading home to pack for the week ahead.
As I was about to head out, one of the baristas at my local Starbucks came in, noticeably not in work clothes. He was there to say goodbye to a co-worker who was leaving for college. I think that's one of the things I love about the coffee shop I go to. It's so obvious that these people get along really well, which helps to make a place like this "home" for a number of people who spend their mornings there, reading, conversing, or working. Since Lyndon wasn't working, it was easy to get him to sit down for a few quick photos for this project. If this was my last shot in Yakima for a few days, Lyndon helped to make it a good one. Honestly, I'm so grateful for even the smallest amount of interaction with people throughout the day and the crew at my morning "office" have really helped to make me feel at home again in this 10 months in Yakima.
I might not have planned for any of today to happen, but no matter. I'm gonna approach it in the same way I would any other day. By making the most of it, because this is the only chance we've got. #UntilWeMeetAgainProject Day 16.
