pre Christmas havoc

The news media have now for days on end shown how the air traffic across the Atlantic has become a bottleneck situation especialy through the British, Dutch and German airports, and Toronto. Nothing new for Toronto. I have been stuck there coming home from Amsterdam one time with a child, about six then, and it was not a pleasurable experience. Crazy is more like it. I avoid air travel during peak holidays; why bother? You get stressed out–the Christmas days are full of guilt and obligations–you fly back and then back to work you go. How much fun is that?
If I could, I would celebrate the peak, socially prescribed days lazying around with a good book and plenty of great snacks and a glass of excellent wine, watching movies for variation. Perhaps a short ski in the winterwonderland will be a part of my days. Alas, the trip I will have to make this year will take me to my only blood relative in the counrtry, as she is not traveling to me! What we won’t do for love! Hopefully, I will be able to leave the airport. Merry Christmas to you.
