“The works of his hands are faithfulness and justice; all his commandments are sure. They stand fast forever and ever, because they are done in truth and equity.”
— Psalm 111

The other day Barb and I were able to take a small break and escape winter’s icy clutches in the Pacific Northwest and visit our son in San Diego, where the temperatures were mostly in the mid-70s. I quietly wondered to myself: Why, again, did we leave California?

It was a nice trip; quite uneventful — the kind I like. We visited, we went places and saw things, but mostly we simply enjoyed being with one with whom we regularly speak, but whom we seldom see (except through the miracle of online video-chats).

We don’t travel much by plane anymore, but it seemed to me that checking in and going through security has improved a lot over the years as folks involved in air transportation have continued to find new (and possibly better) ways to move the public from curb to gate with the least amount of inconvenience...
